    Default Is there a special name for this capstone?

    Is there a specific technical term for this sloped capstone where a masonry chimney structure widens to the side?

    - Thanks

    I've been calling it "that slanty thing". Is that wrong?

    Yeah Nick,

    I only comment on a chimney if it has a 'slanty in'!

    But, thanks Scott and Bob for the real answers! ~Don
