Block stand coming up. After work before dinner job and in the middle of the sea-trout season. It is hard to find time for it all. BTW all materials so far are scavenged. If anybody should wonder why I use blocks of different sizes. Will have to buy the last 15 blocks though

Ready to fill the blocks. Hope I'll have the time to do it soon.

Let me second Russell on the great start and the scavaging. My stand is 100% used block. I get a kick out of scavaging (scrounging) for building material.

On filling those blocks, I have a little tip that helps on small projects. I made a couple of scoops from 1 gallon jugs during the course of my build. The first one I used to fill the cells in my stand. It is flexable enough to get the the last drop out the corners of a wheelbarow, and it forms perfectly to fit the cmu cells for filling without spilling .

I later, used one just like it (the one in the pic) to mix my vcrete.

Nothing like a bit of 'creative upcycling'. After watching some of the builds here some folk would appreciate being able to get their hands on good 'rescued' materials.

A lot of beauty of some material is in the passing of time etched on its surface.
