I was thinking of using local beach stone to build my corner hearth. Most of the books on masonry and stonework show people building w/ cultured stone where the pieces stack on each other. My idea was to use these bigger pieces as the base flat and using the smaller flat pieces and sticking them on the wall with whatever cement is supposed to be used. Each rock is about .75" thick Is there any good books/websites/articles you'd recommend that would help me? Will my idea work?
