MCSC Annual Conference

Sweeping the lake ii

May 16-18, 2019

Masonry Finish Work with River Rock

This will be completed on the Matthews' masonry heater we built last year. We will install a brick skin and then a whimsical river rock pattern on the exterior of the heater. These are good masonry skills to learn for any type of masonry project such as a fireplace or chimney. Hands-on or just observe.  

Instructors: Master Masons Gene Padgitt and Gary Hart 

Safe Chimney Access Using Scaffolding and Personal Fall Protection
Hands-on. Learn how to properly build scaffolding and use fall protection with ropes and personal fall protection devices. CEUs will be applied for.
