more bench pictures

The bench is taking a little longer than anticipated as we expected to be working with second hand walling stone and with the new quarried stone we are having to cut all the coping stones which takes time. It is coming one very nicely though. Geoff tells me the oft repeated story that whenever a waller pics up a stone he always finds a place for it on the wall and never puts it down is made up by folk that never did any walling. Having said that he has a very good eye for picking up a stone that will fit just nicely.

This was end of day yesterday.

And after a few hours this morning.

Not a bad spot to work. we just need to make the row of coping stones for the back and it will be done.

    This is a fun project. I like the combination of materials, and the lines. Very nice!
