    After you cut your cap do you thermal the edges or rockface them?

    i think caps look better when they are thick, like 4'' thick on a wall like that. gives it a much more commanding look.

    Do you usually have to use an oxy-acetylene torch or just Mapp/propane? I can sometimes get propane to do it but it's hit or miss.

    I tried propane.......once. Never popped.

    The seating wall on the walkway has the same cap so we're making them match.......the bigger picture being that the walls in general match.
