it looks it, but it is solid as a rock
But, to make it this solid, the column parts MUST be glued to the others in the same cube. My brother dropped it off of my desk which is 3 feet high (about 1 meter) and it landed at a most vulerable point. It did not seperate.
When using glue, get yourself some Low Viscosity Cyanoacrylate. The kind i got, heats up and melts the plastic together somehow. Actually gets HOT when it gets on your fingers. The brand i use is BOSTIK. i got it on ebay. 1lb for $25. retails for 90
If you use Thick (high viscosity) glue, the bond is not as strong in my experience. For thick, i prefer a Cyanoacrylate called MAXI-CURE. Most US hobby shops sell it. You can order some at http://www.mountainwoodcarvers.com
