Cutting bricks to fit cones that later receive pillars. Here you see Mile cutting the cherry pillar to length. It had to be lifted off after measuring in place. Every step is new. The danger of making a measuring mistake is always present. It will mean a trip to the woods to find a new tree. The design is such that the pillar rests on a brick fundament that matches the diameter of the pillar.If you cut it to short there is no way back. A step forward to putting the first chestnut horizontal in place. It fit in one go. For a team that has never worked on this kind of project you can imagine we brought out the rakia to celebrate the moment.
