I enjoy coming up with new ideas for workshop projects especially at one place in California that I have taught for the last six years each winter. The one we are building this weekend involves three dry stone pillars. They will be joined by three low dry stone arches. The wide pillars will also be recessed in the centres so they can be used as planters. Patric McAfee and I have a great group of students and the project should be completed by this afternoon.
