You really have to look no further than the pyramids of ancient Egypt to see one of the most famous examples of masonry. Their massive stones were laid according to a plan and have withstood the test of time. And just like with the pyramids structures built by a good brick mason even on a smaller scale can withstand all that time and Mother Nature has to offer. Masonry today is considered as much a form of art as it is a skilled trade. In fact with the right mason and plans, amazing things can happen. On The Job headed to Wallace Community College, Selma to check out their Masonry program which produced the nations #1 Mason at the Skills USA National competition.
