Take it away, Grot!
Note: Fluted dowels are used by carpenters to join wood. They are available in vast numbers from hardware shops at very reasonable prices. They come in two sizes, 1.5 and 1 inch.
Note: this is Bricklayer's Sand, it's very fine grained and can be obtained from many hardware shops or your local garden supply place. A big thanks to Leongatha Garden Supply for providing the sand for this project free!
And there you have it Hippo Fans! Making your own tower of terror is not very hard at all, just a little time consuming and of course, space intensive (it's over 15 inches tall!). Naturally, you can use commercial snow and skip over the painting sand stages, but my esteemed colleagues at the Hampton Games Club went for the painted sand method on all the forests and hills they built for Cancon, so I've made this to match.
Stay tuned for next ishoo where the winter wonderland continues when Grot and I tackle a Kislev farm!
