Sound construction techniques was not the point of my comment .
It was in reference to the earlier comment which I quoted ""If you had all those pieces laid out on the ground you'd never put them back together like that again would you dad!"


We may be talking at cross purposes. I read Sanctuary's comment that, "If you had all those pieces laid out on the ground you'd never put them back together like that again..." as meaning that given the option of putting the pieces on the ground back together again you’d put them back corrrectly – correctly here meaning as they originally were and, by implication, in the most stable way.

We might add that aesthetics does not preclude stability (or vice versa) in fact it might be argued that both, when correctly applied, go hand-in-hand to produce something which is both beautiful and stable.
