Tonight in my On My Table series I will show what has been slowly built during the last few months.
The tower is only 27 inches hight, so not as tall as the last one I built. There is a lot of detail in the building and it was a challenge to build in some spots. There are a few departures from the plan when I had a few troubles or were missing stones from when I used the wrong ones early in the build.
The roof of the building was quite complex and used almost all of the larger roof stones. There is a way that I have found to minimize the red showing through on the roof, but I didn’t use the blue pieces of paper I sometime use on this build.
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, as long as I am careful while typing on the other end of the table.
The structure will soon be taken down, and I will build another one.
