Homemade Natural Stone Veneer
Hi All,

Gearing up for a summer of DIY Landscaping.

I would like to turn several tons of natural sandstone rubble into thin veneer. I would like to take the finished veneer and do a drystack ledgestone or coursed ashlar look on CMU blocks with poured footers.

My first question is the corners. While I have A LOT of rubble already on site, I have very few pieces that could be cut into corners. Can I just miter the back out of one piece and fill any little imperfections with colored mortar?

One problem that comes to mind is water entering the mortar at the mitered joint, freezing and splitting the joint
