Sheffield squares for home brewers

It just occurred to me how easy it would be to build home brew scale sheffield squares! You can just follow basic rules for aquarium construction and make them from glass. If you have access to stone slabs, you could use those if you dare.
Using a good food grade silicone, it should be easy enough to stick five squares together and make them liquid tight.

Ok, what are "sheffield squares" Google shows nothing like what you are describing with that search.

I thought Sheffield squares were large square stone fermenters. I seem to recall the kreusen was allowed to overflow into troughs to be repitched. But I could have confused it with something else.
BTW, not EVERYTHING is on the internet! Jus' sayin'.
