An inverted tripod/hourglass tower...
I recently made this small model of an inverted tripod/hourglass tower, with wood dowels and nylon cord using basic square, diagonal, and tripod lashings.
I helped build a full size version of one, when I was about 12 years old with my Boy Scout troop in the early 1980's. It was one of many projects I learned to make with useful knots and ropework.
Searching around online, I came across a few links with similar projects also found under 'pioneering projects', like this one.
