The list of standard brick shapes is available here; however, any size, angle, or special brick shape, can be fabricated from basic stock facing bricks. Some materials are more suitable to processing than others. The most successful results come from well-made, regular size; sand faced traditional bricks with a ‘frog’, (the trough in the top of the brick, filled with mortar when laid). The only limiting factors are the dimensions of the original facing brick.
