This is the stone fireplace in our house:

The rocks are quite big and the surface is very uneven. We want to install this stone fireplace surround:

I have several questions:

  1. I assume I have to cut the surface of the stone to make it at least even / flat and then "cement" the fireplace surround into it? Is that the right approach?

  2. What kind of cement do I use for this?

  3. How do I even cut the stone? Tool?

Love to hear more advise.

  • Depends on the type of stone you're using. If it's relatively soft stone, you can find rock-cutting attachments for angle grinders that would do the job. Usually they look metal and have something hard, like tiny industrial diamonds embedded in the metal. – Ryan Budney Aug 2 '18 at 8:02
  • Is it possible that the stone surface is a veneer? – The Evil Greebo Aug 2 '18 at 14:03
  • It's real stone because I can see the pieces are very uneven ... – HP. Aug 2 '18 at 15:39
