Stonemasons work with a range of materials such as limestone, sandstone, bluestone, slate, marble and granite and may be involved in the design and manufacture of kitchen bench-tops and bathroom vanities, or specialise in ornamental work such as commercial stone facades for new construction projects, fireplaces, banker masonry and carving.

They may repair and maintain historical buildings and monuments, or produce architectural features such as window frames, lintels, archways and ornamental garden pieces.
