This is the result of 2.5 days of work - one stinking column! I had a friend show me how to do this for the first half day. It then took a full day on Sat and Sun to finish the column.
Because I am doing the "dry stack" look and this is a column, I have to trim or grind almost every stone. I am pleased with the results
Other than this, it's really just been small projects. I have the railings up on the front and back decks, but don't have the cables in yet. Other than that there have been some small projects inside.
The reason I am finally jumping on this masonry is that I need to get the pallets of stone out of the garage because that's where the pontoon boat goes in the Winter.
