Rock Adhesive advice
Was looking for suggestions on what to use to keep things together.
I'm looking for something that would enhance structural strength, but would also be somewhat easily removable should I decide to reshape/adjust.

Silicone is unlikely to help. It dries out rapidly in the outdoor environment and loses all strength.shikotee wrote: ↑Aug 17th, 2019 11:14 amTo help visualize, here's a pic from a week ago.
The stacking was rough - just to give me an idea of perspective.
Will level and stack more carefully when finalizing.
Am I nuts for thinking that a few dabs of silicone caulking (between layers) might do the trick?

I would make a line of squish, the weight of the rock will push/balance the adhesive around under the rock,shikotee wrote: ↑Aug 17th, 2019 10:14 pmJust to clarify - I would apply the dabs after stacking (the sides), or apply the dabs and squish like a sandwhich?
Sorry - total masonry noob.
The slab cuts are smooth, and the rock is very flush when stacked. Would the dabs impact this, or would the weight make no difference?

Agree to squish but it’s not mortar. Will even it out when applied right and keep it from rocking but only so much if you have a kid that wants to walk on it as I’m sure my nut bar kid would.
