Note: This illustration does not depict the preferred building up process for the fieldstone work. (It should be one layer at a time.) This illustration is to show how all of the components fit and work together, as if all the stone work were complete and a section was removed to reveal the structure beneath. Only the two bottom layers of wire mesh are shown.

Note: The “cap” of the structure can be almost any noncombustible material: flagstone (shown), marble, granite, cement, slate or floor tile.
