I need a sharp 90 turn on the large 6x16 stackable block wall bricks. How do I transition it smoothly?

Hi sandloar30, 


Thank you for your question and welcome to our community. 


Before you begin to set your blocks, make sure that you have set your footer first. Remember that your footer should be 2 X the width of your block.   If you have further questions on setting the footer, please let us know.  


Once that has been accomplished, you are ready to set your first course of block.  It is very important that you start this at the corner, making sure that each block is level.   Each one of the corners is called the “lead”.  Once the lead had been set, you can set your “lead line” so that you can make sure that each course of block will be level.  Here is a great video that should help out  a lot.
