Simple Brick-on-Edge Copings at Return Angles

When a boundary wall returns at a 90-degree angle or corner, there are two distinct methods of returning the brick-on-edge. The simpler method is also the most common, but there is also a more complex approach that involves mitring the bricks at a 45-degree angle (see Fig 216). For the bricklaying beginner, the simpler method may be preferable.
