On My Table – III – Court of Justice

Tonight in my On My Table series I will  show what has been slowly built during the last few months.

Ankerstein, court of justice, building blocks, stacking blocksThis is one of the largest buildings I have built with Ankerstein. The plan is titled Gerichtsgebäude or Court of Justice and is built with set 24.

It is relaxing to build with Ankerstein, but can also be frustrating. The stones that the building is made of are simply stacked on top of each other. No snapping or gluing the layers together. Just good old fashioned gravity. Despite this the structure if pretty stable, although it did shake a little bit when I was typing on the other end of the table.

The structure has now been taken down and I am starting to build another one.
