Wow! I've been wanting to make cob for quite sometime now! I think you have convinced me! Thanks for taking the time to put this together! We have beautiful red clay that I really want to work with. Love it! Thanks!
Agree 100%! Tarp was mind-dumbingly slow and I don't know how I forced myself to do it for an entire day. The next day I used this exact method shown here in a wheelbarrow and it was much faster and more fun.Or maybe I should get myself some more child workers, eh?
Glad you tried it. If you break up the clay and let the clay soak in buckets or on a tarp! overnight, it is probably easiest. But one time I left it on a tarp for 2 or 3 days and the clay got hard again. Really annoying. If you have a cement mixer, you could definitely mix the sand water and clay in it and it is really quick but don't dare add the straw into the mixer, It will bind around the blades and take forever to remove!
