Default My Drafting work made the news--Fort Bragg

As ya'll know I work at a granite quarry as a draftsman. I was given a project to work on for the government for an "Eternal Flame" monument down at Fort Bragg, NC. We were providing the Granite veneer that wrapped the base of the monument. I dont have pics, but as you can see in the video, I drew up the shop drawing and shop tickets for the 4 angled pieces of granite.

I had to pull out the Pythagorean Theorem and everything else when calculating those stone sizes.

here is the shop drawings for them:

And here they are in physical form under the monument!
