Anasazi wall flopped over in wind storm.

Disassembled with chisel and 3.29 pound hand sledge hammer.

Pieces left in about the same order as stacked.

Three levels reassembled.

Thinset mortar about 1 quart mixed in red paint HANDy paint cup.

Soupy thinset works better than stiff for this application.

Thinset mixing video.

Sedimentary snap rock fitted, thinkset mixed, rock removed, thinset applied, and rocks replaced.

Then wait at least 24 hours for thinset to cure.

Some removed pieces not salvageable so $6 more of 4 inch buf snap rock purchased.

Custom stone editing.

Trick is to tap, tap, tap, ... along line in stone using wood as support until sedimentary rock begins to separate.

Chisel, not wedge video.

BANG, BANG, BANG, only breaks rock in unpredictable pieces.

Wood beneath rock important for cushioning.


Pieces of edited rock at top left just beneath capstone.

Container floral arrangement by bill.

High Country, now Jericho Nursery, conducted a seminar by a professional Santa Fe, New Mexico container planter.

Quail and other metal silhouettes from HORSEFLY MEAL WORKS.

Old back yard bench had to go. A mess.

Junked? Scrapped? Maybe. But technical term is decommissioned.

And there is a cost associated with any decommissioning.

Bonds may be required if costs underestimated so that taxpayers are not stuck with costs.

Sears China-built reciprocating saw was the solution.



Metal-cutting blade used to cut metal braces from bench ends.

One end, all wood, and spine placed in our garbage container.

Other heavy end placed in neighbor's container.

Project took less than 30 minutes to complete ... thanks to PNM electricity.
