Video: Hand carved lettering in stone

Video of hand carved lettering in stone carved in Portland limestone.

​I have recently created a short video of the letter R being carved into Portland limestone. This video was only made using a small camera but I hope it gives you a feel for the way I carve letters. You can see that hand carved lettering in stone takes time and practice. There is no short cut or fast way to carve a letter, and practice is the only way to perfect the art.

Have you seen our new book on headstones?

Our Headstones book is full of advice and inspiration and every penny we raise goes to supporting Maggie's Cancer Care Charity
