I have used Granite natural stones aquired from the mountains surrounding Aqaba, I had some ideas and sketches prepared, I narrowed them down only after seeing the location and selecting the stones, I took my time to chose an option, then it took one day with a winch to assemble my dolmen, and putting the cherry on top.
