Dear Mr. Buckley,

I just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your web site.I have learned much and hope to learn more.I thought I saw a lesson on how to lay Herringbone pattern fireboxes.I have not been able to locate that area again,however.I'm not interested in the Superior prefab box.Could you please let me know how I might find that area again?I am a small town stone mason ,and have just recently started building my own masonry fireplaces.In the past I have always used prefab boxes.Your website has me excited about building Rumfords.I am always trying to learn more about my trade and you have provided some great information.I truly appreciate the time and effort that must have gone into your website.We have owned our own small masonry conracting buisness for almost two years now.I have had two years training under a mason with 30 years experience, before we went out on our own.I would have liked to have had the opportunity to apprentice with him much longer,however,he retired and moved away.I have been laying brick,block,and stone on my own for almost two years,but I haven't had much opportunity to work with patterns other than the standard half lap running bond.I do have a job that I'm just starting that is going to allow me to work with Herringbone and other patterns.Any advise I could get would be greatly appreciated.Thanks again for your time. Thanks again for such a great website!!!!
