Eiffel Tower


I searched and for some reason can’t find anyone who’s made the Obrary Eiffel Tower. That can’t be right. What is going on?! Anyway, here it is taped together and pre paint job- my French speaking daughter wants to paint it glittery gold.


Oh that is just amazing!


Wow, gorgeous! :grinning:


Wow is right.
I wish I had seen this last week. I could not find a good tower to make a gift with and reinvented it from a fuzzy blue print.

Will set the plans aside in case another tower is needed I suppose.


Learn from my dumb mistake. I tried making this earlier in the week and tried scaling it down to be a bit smaller. That of course does not work because the thickness of the wood doesn’t change along with the scaling of the design. 1/8 inch is 1/8 inch no matter what I do in my computer. So, keep the design at its 1 unit= 1mm scale.


This is lovely!


Great work!


Glad you posted this. I had forgotten about Obrary entirely and there were a few designs I had thought to try out. I had assumed they were all tested files though.

Now I will go there with my eyes open, Examination of these tower files shows 3 different thickness of lumber.
If I ever decide to go through it and make it all into .145 or something, I may as well try to shrink it while I am at it.

The files I downloaded were set at 3.2mm (.126") on the slots using autoCAD. Units were undefined. Came out a touch loose fitting- will need glue to stay together. FWIW.


Holy bajeezus! Well Done!
