I'm currently making a Rook chess piece on Blender. I've been trying to use the boolean modifier to subtract a part of the chess piece. The first application of the boolean modifier worked. However, as I was on my second attempt, I got the message "Cannot execute boolean operation".

enter image description here

I've already searched online for any possible solutions, but nothing seemed to have worked with mine. Could anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance.

    $\begingroup$ You have a ring of faces which have no surface on the top of the tower. If you 'remove doubles' it will work... of course the creases are lost... but you can add an edge split modifier at the end $\endgroup$ – lemon Aug 6 '16 at 10:55
