Spinning Gold

Working with an awkward shaped random granite found near the shoreline of a lake in the Haliburton Hills Ontario area this week. I feel like I'm expected to spin gold from straw. The project requires I make 60 feet of perfectly flat 22 inch high wall. As soon as you lay the first random hexagonal shaped stones in a course you have to worry about how the next stone course will bring it to level. And all these cap stones need to be big stones too . We are doing the impossible here.

Here is our selection.

Its a curved wall that surrounds a new amphitheatre.

Pretty nice eh?
