It has taken a lot of design work, but the stand build for the stalagmite is under way. One of the biggest problems to overcome was the uneven contour on the back of the stalagmite, I decided to build a cradle for it out of reinforced concrete. I will then set the concrete cradle into the back of the stand to securely hold the stalagmite in place. I put a bed sheet folded in half on the back of the stalagmite, put a 12 by 24 inch 2×4 form down, lined it with heavy duty plastic, then mixed and poured the concrete. Once the concrete form dries the build will proceed with full vigor.
