We recently fabricated some 30″ wide diameter round bluestone caps for a local customer. The rounds were used to cap piers outside of an entryway into a house. The caps came out great, and we wanted to show some of the techniques that were used to make these.
We’ve added some new photos to the website for your viewing pleasure, and there will be more added in the coming weeks. The pictures were taken of jobs that were completed in 2014, and were submitted by our customers (whom we thank deeply).

Robinson Flagstone Notice
*As it is a naturally formed material, all stone is subject to variations in color, thickness and texture. Photos and samples represent the average run and are not guaranteed to exactly match the actual material.
All materials are packaged on heavy duty end gate pallets. Most material is banded or wrapped for secure packaging. A full pallet can weigh 3000 to 4000 plus pounds. Local deliveries are typically hand delivered. For non local deliveries, stone is shipped via common carrier van type trucks or open deck tractor trailers. It is then the recipient’s responsibility to have a forklift or skid steer on site to unload the materials from the truck.
