Stability

After a tutorial with Ingrid I was made aware of some issues my design might have with stability: because it has long legs it might need bracing in order to stop the legs from moving around too much, and splaying when it is in use.

A circular brace would definitely stop it from splaying, but would also render it unstackable. which is an important aspect of my design. The cross brace would mean that it can still be stacked, although less could be put in each tower, due to height restrictions.
