Halifax Armoury Springers

These two springers are part of the newly designed entrance to the North Park Armoury in Halifax, NS. Fundy Stonecraft was hired to fabricated the stones from rough sawn blocks to finished product according to drawings that were provided. The challenge of this project was the creation of false joints in the rock face, and moving and manipulating a 18,000lb stone.

The springers start as 18,000lb sawn sandstone blocks. From this point they are worked entirely by hand, using grinders, circular saws, pneumatic and hand tools.
