There is a consistent wall thickness of 1/4" throughout. The base is a slight bit thicker, due to the pedestal, but overall it's consistent. It's about 9" tall and very stable. The bottom one is also pretty stable, and yes the globe is hollow with a wall thickness of about 3/16", much lighter in weight than it looks.Originally posted by BigRob777
<br />Very nice. Did you manage to keep a standard wall thickness on the top one? I don't see how it's possible. How is it for tipping? The top one has a nice utilitary look to it, like I wouldn't be afraid to pick it up. I'd love to see the pedestal.
