thin veneer

This is a thin veneer job, a wood stove surround, with the added feature of six stone shelves cantilevered out of the veneer with no other support.  The top two are quite heavy--I had to get a piece of scaffold and stand on it so I could place them carefully into the wall.  I didn't want to risk having them fall on the lower shelves.  After each shelf was set with a temporary wood brace on its outer corner, I laid up stone above it in both directions.  Once the concrete set, the braces were removed.

These pictures are in an extra window.  Just close it when you are finished.
