“Truncated Octahedron” wood model

Wood Truncated Octahedron model, one of the 13 Archimedes Solids

It has 8 hexagons, 6 squares, 24 vertices, 36 pieces of wood, each compound mitered tword the imaginary center point. I make them 9″ or 12″ tall & wood stained in cherrywood, walnut, ebony, or just a clear polyurethane on wood (shown). The lightest are best for classroom, because they show cross shadows on the back pieces batter than darker stain.

For the complete index, please see my website.
