A stonemason is a person who builds structures (such as cathedrals and castles) out of stones such as limestone, sandstone, slate, marble, granite, field rock, and river rock. They were highly skilled people who combined the roles of architecting, crafting, desiging, and engineering to produce beautiful buildings seen today. Some of the most beautiful creations they built standing today are Gothic Cathedrals.

By "Stone Masons" we assume you refer to Monumental Stone Masons - the contractors and artisans who create individual memorials. Well Waverley Cemetery Is a business and… the establishemnt and growth of the business has involved a great number of contractors to the business over the least 130+ years. The individual memorials as a collective might seem like good luck but the stles and class of memorial permitted in the cemetery has always been at the direction of the Cemetery Management. Waverley has always had a policy of predominant standstone and white marble monumentation. This continues today. The infrastructure of the site was designed to meet the challenging location, retaining walls of local stone (quarried on the site), the earliest recorded use of macadam roads in a Sydney cemetery, and advanced drainage techniques are all testiment to Victorian Sydneys technical ability. www.waverley.nsw.gov.au/cemetery
Most medieval stonemasons belonged to a guild that looked after its members. The guild regulated trade practices and working hours as well as provided sick pay and pension…s. Stonemasons were involved in some of the most important buildings in history through the use of tools.
Cloths just like the king made of delicate silck and little bits of gold.
The medieval stonemasons built large structures like Gothic cathedrals, churches, castles, etc. out of stone. Modern stonemasons build stone walls and decorate the outsid…e of floors, walls, etc. with stone.

Ludwig Goldscheider, Michelangelo (Phaidon, 1973) has this insignia on its black cloth hard cover: three rings triangularly set and initial M in one of the rings. and and "Mic…helangelo" callgraphied underneath. His sheets of drawings used to guide quarrymen in cutting stones for his projects, particularly c. 1520 all show this three-ring design and a work, unfinished, in the Accademia in Florence called (erroneously) the "Atlas Slave" still shows this three ring design on its upper-most face, a surface never touched by the act of sculpture. Michelangelo apparently created his stone mason's symbol using an early, and similar, symbol used by the Medici Family. He said the circles represent "Sculpture", "Painting," and "Architecture," contemplation of which "raises the thoughts to heaven."

The short answer is that a stonemason worked with stone for buildings. Masons were very highly skilled (and highly paid) craftsmen who travelled from one building project to… another, sometimes spending many years on one project. They generally worked with "freestone" that was soft enough to be easily cut and carved, but sometimes much harder stone was used for a specific job. They learned their craft by way of an apprenticeship; once he had passed his examination the mason would be given his own personal "mason's mark" that he would use to "sign" his work in future - many of these marks can still be seen on stone buildings from the medieval period. Tools consisted of ladders, saws, mallets, hammers, chisels and punches, drills, simple dividers and compasses, trowels, plumblines, ropes and set squares. Abrasive stones were also used to create smooth outer faces on dressed stones. See links below for images:
