Wooden Truncated Dodecahedron by RNDmodels Wooden Truncated Dodecahedron by RNDmodels
An all wood truncated Dodecahedron. This is what happens when you clip off the vertices of a regular dodecahedron, you get 12 decagons, 20 equilateral triangles, 60 vertices and (hard to believe) 90 individual pieces of wood. Each piece is mitered on both ends with such a slight taper, they all lean into the imaginary center point of the entire piece.

This would be a nice hanging lamp or table top sculpture in a 1950s Atomic Age decor.

9" tall, I stain them light (shown) dark (walnut) or red (cherry) wood stain, then seal with clear polyurethane.

*cheers*

Thank you Amy, this was one of my favorite pieces to make! I did like that class actually, if its a tangible object I can see and touch I can comprehend it better than abstract things!

These are beautiful and clean! Great work! I'd love to use some hi-res images of them as wall art. Do you have any hi-res images for sale?

Thanks so much, glad you like my pieces!
Unfortunately not yet, these are all just scans of developed film. I have a photographer friend who is planning a photo shoot with pro lighting etc for some hi-res shots, maybe some posters for schools etc. :)
