Quote from: Redoverfarm on May 20, 2012, 07:16:12 PMIf the blue taped area is the mantle location might I make a suggestion. Use a piece of 3/4-2X material ( same thickness as your mantle) screwed to the wall. Then you can lay the stone up to the bottom and above. Then later remove that scrap and insert the mantle. It is very easy to lay them too close to the tape line and the mantle will not fit. Allow some margin of error so that it will not be too tight. That margin area can be filled with grout.
Quote from: mogie01 on May 21, 2012, 11:35:52 AMThanks Redoverfarm, great idea, I can see how it would be so easy to lay the stones too close and not give ourselves enough room for the mantle. When it comes time to grout, do you use any special kind of tools to push in the grout or to smooth out the grout lines? There's lots of grouting to be done so any tips would be much appreciated
