The stonemason could work in any stone according to supply in the region and brought in from outside in large blocks pulled by two horses and cut on side by a large toothless saw. He worked on buildings and on millstones.
In latter days the stonemason and his craft has been replaced by the use of concrete, except for replacement work.
