Mason's workshop

This article is about an older version of DF.

Masons are responsible for creating furniture and other objects out of stone in a mason's workshop. Masonry is also required for building constructions (walls, floors, etc.) out of stone, stone blocks or glass blocks, and soap.

Building paved roads no yes noVerify noVerify
Building other constructions made from stone or glass (walls, stairs, etc.) yes no no no

As stone is plentiful early on in almost any fort, and the tables, chairs, and doors a mason can build are immediately desirable, bringing a mason along is a sensible choice for most starting builds.
