RE: Fw: statue construction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Some manufacturers of limestone, marble and granite provide details for cut limestone with pins, dowels and grout. Look up the material of which the statue is constructed go to the various cut stone web sites and see their suggeste details. Often they use a stainless steel pin grouted in the bottom portion (to avoid a pocket for water) and set the top piece (with another hole). They then mortar the 2 pieces together.
