I stacked the rock using a masonary drill bit to drill through the rocks one at a time. I then inserted a fiberglass rod through the holes I had drilled. So basically you're shish kabobing the rocks together. it helps if u start with a heavy base rock on the bottom so the structure has stability. You can purchase the fiberglass rods from home depot. All they are is drive way reflectors. The kind u stick in the ground. Of course u have to cut the refelctor part off. fish avatar
