Class Coming Up in August!

NEW STONE FACING AND FOAM CORE CONSTRUCTION CLASS BY VERTICAL ARTISANS

Jason Micelli and Deane J. Pantaleo at J & D Supply will be hosting a Foam Core Construction event where we will be fabricating a very unique stone entrance way using the very best techniques in stone facing.   This entranceway will also have organic rock work and a massive multi leveled sales desk and customer reception desk installed.   

The course will be Wednesday – Friday the first or second week of August.   Saturday will be a bonus.

Each student will receive a years subscription to The Art of Stone Facing and Foam Core Construction courses offered on Vertical Artisans.

The cost of the class is $1500 and if you would like to build your own Ice Rock, Fire Pit, or some other small idea the price is $1900.  This simply covers materials and you can not leave your master piece, you must take it with you 😊  You must also tell us immediately so we can have your materials ready.

Class Address:

9910 West 190th Street Mokena IL suite B

Protecting a concrete patio

What is the best way to protect a concrete patio when building projects on them? I am thinking plastic sheeting and then cutting around the finished pieces and leaving the plastic under them.  Is that ok or is there a better way? I have to build the pieces on site.thanksSee More

I used a 1:6 cement ratio for my scratch coat is that going to be too weak?

I've built a large mushrooming 1/2 inch steel structure crossing my steel in 8 by 10in squares though the cement that we used was 1:6 ratio portland lime and concrete sand. We went 3 inches thick and now I'm going to add the carve coat as a 1:3 ratio.What's the worst that could happen with using a 1:6 for the scratch coat in this situation folks?See More
