Celtic polyhedral

One of the first custom polyhedrals I made a couple years ago was a Celtic themed icosiodecahedron. I’ve come full circle and for my latest created a Celtic themed polyhedral that is a 25% dual morph icosidodecahedron. I’ve lost the creative drive, and will be giving up on polyhedrals for a while, as I need to find something else to focus on. I’m happy with the way this one turned out, as it was done on proofgrade Walnut. I’m sure I’ll come back to creating these 3D shapes once inspiration strikes, but I’m retiring from polyhedrals for now.

All of your creations blow my mind.

You can’t give up the polyhedra, you’re the Polyhedra King! :astonished:

Although…if you are looking to expand…I have always wanted to tackle the Frabjous. never did due to lack of time/patience…but I’ll bet you could do it.

(And when you inevitably do it…be a sport and share the assembly instructions…I wound up heaving the damned thing into the trash.) :rofl:

Thanks for the tip, I’ll look into it. I’m a few other projects in the works, but I’ll add this to my list.

Well, if this is the end for awhile, you’re going out with a bang. Your latest one is absolutely gorgeous!

Had to look that up…
I could see @pubultrastar tackle that, but he really needs a different kind of challenge… one that doesn’t create more objects sitting around. Something more practical maybe.

That is outstandingly beautiful! Good luck in your next endeavors, please continue to share!

What a beautiful exit project. I hope, however, that you are just taking a break from polyhedrals so you can focus your artistic talent elsewhere. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

Your polyhedra are always mind-blowing but this one beats all the rest. I can understand having trouble one-upping that. The only thing I can imagine is making a blind fastener that would not show on the outside. If you are 3D printing the connections anyway I would think a snap connector would not be difficult to add that would snap into a half drilled hole. :grin:

Super nice way to wind up the series!

I’m working on something epic. Soon…

I have designed one like this, but eventually just found it easier to glue a second layer on top to hide the screws, kinda like the Pentegonal Hexecontahedron. I have created over 23 different complex polyhedrals, and still have connectors designed for another 6 or so. Just don’t have the motivation anymore to come up with new designs for the outsides. I’m sure I’ll come back to it someday, but I’d like to explore other things besides just being the Polyhedral King… :wink:

You have of course been that. Amazing creative stuff long before the first one I saw.

Wow! That is so beautiful! Your polyhedrals are just so amazing, but this one just really looks amazing! I love the art you put into it and the wood just looks awesome.

I almost feels imperial with a celtic twist!

I’m a big lover of Celtic work … and this is either my favorite piece of yours, or very close.
