CAUTION! I advise you not to use micro parts for this project. The reason is that when the whiteboard placed on a micro parts, it puts too much pressure and the structure would break. So do not use micro parts.
Step 2: Build the Lower Section of Left Tower
Build the left part of the tower using the images below. Once completed to parts to the lower left, stack the second part on top of the lower left base.
