CUSTOM STONE FABRICATION & ENGRAVING
With our in house fabrication shop we can fabricate bluestone, limestone, granite, and brownstone to fit your custom project*. Some of the many fabrication possibilities include: pillar caps, radius steps for front entry ways, caps for stone walls, fireplace mantle and hearth stones, and counter tops for outdoor barbecues.
*Certain orders may need to be sent out to the quarry for fabrication. Please contact TLC Supply to discuss fabrication orders and lead times.

Common Finishes & Terminology
Rock Face – A Rock Faced edge finish is produced by striking the stone surface with a chisel leaving a rough natural edge finish.
Thermal – The thermal finish is produced by applying a high-temperature torch to the surface of the stone leaving a rough-textured finish.
Pencil – A penciled edge resembles the end of a pencil eraser with a slight radius.
Chamfered – A chamfered edge is 45 ° cut into the edge of the stone. The deeper the cut, the wider the bevel face is.
Ease – This edge treatment is very common and offers a clean and simple look. Easing an edge offers a square flat face with the sharp edge on top rounded slightly. Sometimes, the eased edge is rounded enough to be called a quarter round edge.
Full or Half Bull-nose – The full bull-nose offers perhaps the most contemporary look. A side view of full bull-nose shows the shape of a half circle. The full bull-nose is gentle on the body and has no edges to chip. The half bull-nose edge can also be called the round-over because instead of being squared off, it is rounded over.
