Wood Platonic Solids Models set for education & display

These are 9″ tall wood models of the 5 Platonic Solids I make for Math, Astronomy and Physics classroom visual aids. They are all compound mitered on all 3 axis at the vertices for maximum glue strength. They also make great office & home decor pieces. 9″ max on any axis seems to be the best for a 12″ cube box to ship them in. I have alot more geometry pieces on my website. Typically when I set up the saw for each of the compound miters, I make them in batches of 10 or so to keep down all of the set up time involved.

From left: Octahedron, Dodecahedron, Tetrahedron, Icosahedron & Cube. These are just clear polyurethane coated for clarity in the photos, but I also wood stain & clear seal them to match someones home or office decor.

 Wood Octahedron Model / 8 triangle planes, 6 vertices and 12 pieces.

 Wood Dodecahedron Model / 12 pentagon faces, 20 vertices and 30 pieces.

Wood Tetrahedron Model / 4 triangle planes, 4 vertices and 6 pieces.

Wood Icosahedron Model / 20 triangles, 12 vertices and 30 pieces.

Wood Cube Model / 6 squares, 8 vertices and 12 pieces.

    Dear Sir,

    Beautiful work! As I understand, you have been a craftsman for many years.

    Great to get to know your work and website.

    How much would a set of Platonic Solids cost, and can you send them overseas to Belgium?

    Greetings,

    Wim Bruynseels, Belgium
