Can you make your own dry stack panel and mount it to the wall??

Jon, made this video walking through when we first got onsite yesterday. Concrete decks will butt against the coping, the transition joint gets filled with deco-seal. The ledger board/ forms were set at waterline grade, ~6” below the highest point of the bond beam.

Finished another Rock Ridge quartz 6x24 Glacier splitface ledger panel tv accent wall but in Tampa last week.
I just love how these walls come out looking. The customers love them!

Brian, that looks soooooo good. I assume you're having to touch a few of the "high pieces" with an angle grinder so the electrical plates can lay relatively flat ?

Dang that's nice Brian, I like that stone a lot.
Cut-wise, are you running it through a wet saw? or Angle grinder?

I try to select a couple of the stone panels that have a few flat ones together when I start getting near the outlet. If not I do grind them a little and manipulate to lay flat.

yes they cut like butter on the wet saw and the edges look nice and smooth.

Thanks Jeff This one took around 6 months. A lot of detail. The upper pool/spa area and the outside negative edge wall both have 150 or so fiber optic lights. That alone was some aggravating and time consuming work. Looks pretty cool though. I need to get a video or picture around dusk. They don't show up in pictures during daylight.
Travel? I have done a few pools outside Sarasota.

Wow, Jerry. That is an amazing amount of work. It looks fabulous. I love the colors. The client has got to be super stoked! Hope they spot you an extra finski or two, eh? If that was my house, I don't think I could bring myself to ever come back in from the outside.

Most impressive, Jerry. As usual.

I'm intrigued by the five big bollard-looking things. I'm sure I'm missing some basic about the concept, but...........?

Nice Brian, wet saw cuts through ‘em like butter. Panels go up like clockwork when you’re setting tight & flat, your pics make it seem that panels come perfect. Imagine you do some shimming & shaving here & there.

Holy crap Jerry Maestro, top class work as always. Putting a whole new meaning to the amount of detail and options possible with tile and mud work. Freaking badass stuff, hard to choose my favorite detail. Definitely between the spa loungers, spa seat step downs & of course those submarine tops in the pool

Here’s that quartzite beach entry out in Copperopolis. First pic is dry cut, other two are after rough Installation. The holes were left on purpose so we know where to core drill for the umbrella sleeves. Still need to acid wash and dress up some edges to smooth ‘em out
We’re pouring concrete decks Wednesday and Pebble crew is coming Fri-Sat. Swimming Saturday Night
