A grumpy creature

Baltic birch plywood, medium black proofgrade acrylic

A compact creature with an attitude. Technically a pentagonal icositetrahedron, but I think anyone would be grumpy if they always had to spell their name for everyone.

He’s sharp, assembly was a little tricky. :slight_smile:

I like it. That would be hard to play catch with though.

Any mid assembly photos?

Would it though? The throw part maybe tricky, but the catch part easy. :crazy_face::upside_down_face:

It’s sharp enough that the throw wouldn’t be great either :slight_smile:

Fitting on a standard name plate designed for 15 letters would be hard.

Oh, my cats would love this! I love it too, but for different reasons.

Ooooh, neat! I just happened to re-watch The Andromeda Strain, and for some reason your spike reminds me of that. Or even a more recent virus.

Now if you could make it where one part could easily be opened, because of the design it would be hidden, it would make a dandy little hiding place for something!
