So the next day he requested the different finish. Of course, there was much muttering and shaking of heads for a good hour. Finally, Frugal Father showed them how it was done and to give them credit, they oohed and aahed and there was general agreement that it was a good finish.
However, the next section they attempted still wasn't quite right, so either FF will do it himself or will have to follow them around with his tools.
But this is great to see the pointing. And there's only about 1/4 left to stone, which also happens to be the easier of all the sections. FF is searching for stone on our land wherever he can find it. A tight budget means we can't just go buying new tone because the workers would like it.
Also, you should note that the stone won't remain that lovely golden tone, it will turn a dark or light grey, depending upon what sun it sees.
