If you want to be really clever, start by placing a torch, then one block of dirt on top of it, and after that build the stack of gravel. If you want to pull it down from the bottom, just remove the dirt block and the tower will collapse on the torch automatically. The only thing you need to do is stand there smiling while you collect your gravel as it falls down.
