New skillz - Cutting Retaining wall bricks

When we started onto this retaining wall project, we had an idea of what needed to happen, and of some of the steps to get there, but no idea on how to actually do masonry.

Its been a quick learn on how to set blocks and shape them for the project.

So I tried making our first ever video to outline how to cut retaining wall blocks - or at least how to get the little foot things off the bottom of them so they sit flat in the base course. Its actually pretty easy to do - just takes a chisel and mallet.


Maybe I'll update on progress soon, things are really starting to come together now, I've just been too busy to put up blogposts, and at the end of the day I'm too tired to lift anything heavier than a cold drink. Oh, and the tablet doesn't take good pictures after dark!
