Abstract

The present invention relates a mold box (10), a method of manufacturing a block (100), and a wall block with a stepped-back strata and ledges imprinted on one or more faces (106) of the block. A mold box is provided with a block face liner (22a/b, 32a/b, 42a/b, 52a/b) that is machine cut to create a particular strata and ledge pattern that is widest at the top of the liner and steps back over a plurality of planes to a narrower width at the bottom of the liner. Masonry material is allowed to form in the mold box around the liner to produce the strata and ledges imprint onto one or more faces of the block. The invention also relates to the mold box, multiple embodiments of the block face liner with differing strata and ledge patterns, and to blocks formed in the mold box and methods of constructing walls with the blocks.
