Wood Platonic Solids Models in the Physics Lab

Some of our wood Platonic Solids models in action. A friend looked all over the web for something like these for the classroom that would be much more durable and permanent than just card stock or construction paper. We found some color plastic ones, but not really what would look good in a university math lab, library or bookshelf.

Most things today are just computer generated line drawings, so there is something really cool about having a tangible geometric model to help show a concept. Like most other things, they are much easier to build in a batch then one at a time and that keeps them a lot more cost-effective.
