The stone circle


Having seen several dry stacked stone circle attempts posted on the Internet ( all requiring some sort of shoulder packing at the base to hold the things together ) I thought to myself I wonder if it can be done making a complete circle without any extra support at the bottom. This stone hoop I recently built was supported only at the midsection by the dry stone wall gate ends on our property.


Ironically the bottom half is the most difficult part of the circle to build and have it stay standing



My daughter and I enjoying our success. Now to build it again without the side walls to support it. How do we do that?
