Springers are here.

Went to the quarry on Monday and hand-picked some voussoirs for the dry stone bridge we will be building next week with the students taking the two week Salem Bridge Workshop.

We also picked up a few stones with natural shapes that will do very nicely for the bridge 'springers'. 

One of them was pretty large. I'd say it was about 800 pounds.We will likely split it down the middle with feather and wedges and make two 400 pound springers out of it.
