“Truncated Dodecahedron” Wood Model

Truncated Dodecahedron all wood model.

The Truncated Dodecahedron is one of the 13 Archimedean Solids.  It has 12 decagons, 20  triangles, 60 vertices and 90 pieces of wood. Each piece is mitered so that they lay on an imaginary plane that passes through the center point.

This was a popular geometric piece during the 1950s – 60s Atomic Age, and was common to see as a hanging light fixture or a table top sculpture.

I make these in pine, then wood stained in fruitwood (light, shown), walnut (dark), cherry (red), or ebony (black). Each piece is signed, then sealed in clear polyurethane.
