Mike Haduck: Stone mason examines sites around the world
Mike Haduck Masonry
I am a Pennsylvania U.S.A. mason and began working in the family masonry business 1969 I worked along the same masons who built the churches of the 20s and 30s. My family was involved in the stone jobs of WPA era. I am US Navy veteran and studied Law and Architecture at the college level, visited over 60 countries, was a union mason in NJ, and taught masonry a few times for the PA PCC program. I play the Guitar, Banjo, and Fiddle and recorded with Empire Records, (Nashville) in 1993. I still perform a few times a month with the Hometown boyz (Pennsylvania). I had my real estate license over 4 years and currently continue in the masonry field and enjoy passing along many of my "Old School" techniques, As you can understand it is impossible to give advice over the phone or internet. My way is not the only way to do things, God bless, Mike

Egeskov Castle in Denmark, I did a short day visit and show the outside and inside of the castle, also some short visits to other castles in Denmark, I did a short comment on how the castles were built out of brick, (old school), my opinion.
I (Mike Haduck) filmed the old school style of brickwork in modern china, I was on tour with a music group called "The New World Ensemble" and on my time off I was walking the streets filming brick masons and the building in china. I think these videos prove the fact that most experience masons approach brick work the same way, All my videos are my ways and ideas, I always suggest anyone doing any type of work to consult professional help.
