To boast or block out a piece of stone or wood is to shape it into the simple form which approaches nearest to its ultimate figure, leaving the smaller details to be worked out afterwards. Sometimes capitals, corbels, etc., especially of the 13th century, are found in this state, never having been finished. A good example occurs in the crypt at Canterbury.
