What is bond stone and other stone masonry information

When a wall or other structure is built of stone, a number of bond stones are attached to hold the structure together. A bond stone is sometimes called a “tie stone” or a “through stone”. It extends across the entire width of the wall - from the outside of the wall to the inside of the wall. Stone walls are usually built in two layers, with bond stone running through those layers to hold them together so they don't crack or split in the middle. The intermediate spaces are usually filled with crushed stone, and the connecting stones are evenly spread over the entire surface of the wall, so that the whole wall is a solid object. Bond stones are often used with stone masonry.

Rubble masonry uses rough stones that are not hammered. The thickness of the joints is often irregular, which makes the stonework appear rugged and rough. Rubble masonry is divided into three categories: squared rubble masonry, dry rubble masonry, and random rubble masonry. Random stone masonry is the roughest and cheapest type of masonry. It uses stones that are not uniform. These stones of different sizes and shapes form the structure and the gaps are filled with mortar. Squared stone masonry uses stones that have been pounded into a square shape to create fairly uniform stones. Dry rubble masonry uses a variety of stones that fit together and eliminate the need for mortar. For this type of masonry, the height of the walls must not exceed six meters.

Ashlars masonry is another type of masonry. It is more expensive and uses fine-shaped stones. Unlike rubble masonry, all joints, stones, thickness and other aspects are uniform, creating a wall that looks good and remains strong. The joints of Ashlars masonry are tightly sealed together with lime mortar or concrete. This type of masonry is often used in architectural buildings, bridges, pillars, and other massive structures.​

What does a stone mason do?

Stonemasons use brick, concrete blocks, cement, and natural and artificial stone to build bridges, walls, fences, sidewalks, and other stone-like objects. Masons often specialize in one material - for example stone or brick masons.

Stone masons build stone structures such as walls, arches, and piers. They create stone walkways or can fashion tanks, vats, and floors. A mason's primary tools are simply a hammer and chisel, which they use to shape the various stones and join them together to create ornate and masterful structures. Stonemasons usually start with a stone block, which is cut from a larger solid natural stone. Masons take this stone and shape it into precise shapes that create solid structures, sculptures or monuments. The work of a skilled mason can last for hundreds of years. For example, just look at the castles of Europe, or the ancient buildings and aqueducts of Rome.
