i've done 1 or 2,,, the most important thing is understanding you only get 1 chance to do it right,,, 1 more thing - put it in right side up - its a large pita to turn it right side up if you don't :vs_mad:

that being said, you need to ask more specific questions - howzabout a diy concrete book from your favorite apron/vest store for Christmas gifting to yourself ?

This is one of those jobs that seems easy to do but there's way more to it then your thinking.
As mentioned it's a one shot deal, done wrong there's just is no going back and fixing it later.
Hire it out.

this seems like a risky DIY project to me.

interlocking stone is WAY more forgiving and looks great. better suited to DIY. you can also get a huge stash of red bricks on craigs list from old houses on tear down if you look'n for cost saving.
