Our smashable structure

This structure was built of 1/2" hardwood dowel, nuts and bolts, 1/16" steel cable, and lots of glue. Since none of the pieces (especially the cable) wanted to stay where they were put it was very hard to assemble.

 

The purpose was to smash it and see how much loading it would take and how it would fail under load.
