August Waller of the Month: Joe Johonness

JOE JOHONNESS (New York) — Joe has been building dry stone projects in the Sullivan County, NY area since 2017. He holds Level 1 Initial Certification from the DSWA-GB and looks forward to his next workshop with the Stone Trust.

FEATURED IMAGE: A 40 foot by 80 foot sloped area was excavated and two dry stacked retaining walls were built. Topsoil and sod were laid for a playground area. The wall material was a mix of bluestone from the Catskills ranging in size from one to two inch, two to four inch, and four to eight inch with some larger boulders for a substantial base.
