This weekend I made bowls as I’m running a little low on my inventory of bowls. I’ve shown that here before, so nothing new there.
But what my hard working roadie did was a lot more interesting. He is splitting large limestone slabs to be used to build a retaining wall at the studio. He uses a hammer drill to drill holes in the slabs and then pounds some wedges into the holes using shims to separate the slabs into multiple pieces. It’s pretty cool. Then he moves the smaller pieces (still several hundred pounds) to the other side of the vegetation (weeds) in the background where the wall is being built. The wall will hold the flat spot we’ve (Kevin) graded for a shed to house a kiln.
