Block Tower

Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

A number of years ago, my dad made a set of blocks out of high quality maple 1×3s.

Blocks

Today my brother Ben and I made a tower out of these blocks–18 levels high, 16 blocks per level.

Finished Tower

We took the tower down one block at a time, taking a picture of it each time. I reversed the list of images and then turned it into a video. It looks like the tower is going up, but we “filmed” it, stop motion style, in reverse. More pictures on Flickr.
