Heart Shaped Enclosure

We are using a very awkward stone at the workshop this weekend in Redwood City to build a small valentine garden.

I have eight wonderfully enthusiastic students this year who are learning to dry lay stones in an Aran Island style. The stones are placed vertically. When done right they wedge together tightly and have a lot more strength.

Here is a sketchup design I did that shows how the 'broken heart' will look.
