Making a double Gothic arch lintel from start to finish.
This is how we made a double Gothic arch lintel from start to finish. I took dimensions from a site survey and created a full set of working drawings in AutoCAD. I have included the full production with the exception of the sawing. The timer on the screen shows 12 hours of work, but I know there is some footage missing from when the GoPro battery ran out on a few occasions. Our stone mason uses a combination of power tools and hand tools. Power tools are used to remove waste as efficiently as possible, and a mallet and chisel are used for fine detail as they are still the best tools for the job.
