NANFA-- Above ground pond

After sitting on this pond liner for about two years, I have reached the
conclusion that if I hold out until I have time to DIG a really nice pond (or
two, as I had planned), the the liner will have long since disintegrated into
dust. So, my plan is to build an above ground pond. The liner is about 12' by
30'. The idea is to build a "box" out of landscape timbers, 2 feet high and 8'
by 24' in the ground plane. The long sides will be constructed by overlapping
the timbers 50%, and the whole deal will be held together by rebar driven
through holes drilled in the timbers, and maybe 2 feet into the ground. Quick
and easy.

Anybody done this before? What are your suggestions?
