Assembly has been completed: (Final photos will be up soon!)

Images from the ground work construction.  2″ Concrete base to stabilize ( 8 ) 5/8″ x 2′ threaded rods driven into grade.  Leveling nuts and gaskets will secure the base panels to the threaded rod.

5 rows down 22 to go!  Avergaing roughly 2-3 rows per hour. 

All bolts still need to be tightened to fix curvature in place.
