* I decided to make a fresh thread for this project because the other one drifted way off topic and this tower (one of my favorites) has gotten ignored. That being said, could we please stay on topic in this thread and discuss this tower and related projects...what does everyone think about this design?

Also, please update this thread with recent pics and other information you might come across, thanks.
