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 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.
