I'm building a tower for Science Olympia and they judge it by dividing how much weight it can hold by how much it ways. This tower must be made of wood so I have chosen bass wood because it is light and the grain is close together wich is more suitable for a small scale project. My question is what sort of technique should be used to build this small tower. It can be held together only by glue. Perhaps maybe someone could give me some ideas?
