Eiffel Tower


Craft Your Own 

Wooden Stick Eiffel Tower


Build this satisfyingly beautiful to scale model of one of the World’s most iconic man-made wonders. The Eiffel Tower. The great engineering beauty of Paris, France, was dreamed up by Gustave Eiffel whose company designed and built the tower from 1887 to 1889 for the World’s Fair.

If you are looking for a challenging model project, this is the project for you.

You will most likely already have the tools you need for the project, shown below. The model consists of over 200 wooden dowels, cut into approximately 4,500 pieces.

You can watch my videos to see how I constructed this 1:500 scale model and learn my techniques on how to bend the dowels so they don’t break.


The Tower Model

This 26” tall by 10” wide model uses a little over 200, 1/8” x 12” wooden dowels 4,500 pieces glued together.


Materials Needed

You might already have some of the tools and materials at home but I have included a link just in case you need to purchase them.
