Golden Ratio “Phi” Hexahedron

This is a 3 dimensional wood model of a rectangular hexahedron made to the proportions of the ‘Golden Ratio’ (phi). Nice little bookshelf or classroom lecture piece.

It’s either 9″ or 12″ on the longest axis with the corresponding pieces in very close fractional proportions to phi (its a conversation model, not for precision machinist work!). The ‘Golden Ratio’ is represented in black twice on this piece, the small to medium on the left, the medium to large on the right. I can make this in cherry wood or walnut wood stain (along with the black), or just clear coat polyurethane along with black as shown here.
