Icosahedron or soccer ball shape made as school project for my daughter.
From woodworking point of view it’s total failure, but wooden filler and sanding paper made it sufficient for school project. My daughter helped with glueing and she has done all paintings.
It’s made of 10mm playwood, sticked with instand bond glue.
Pentagon and hexagon cuts were made on bandsaw with small improvised jig and vertical angles on tilted table of my discsander.
It has some 95mm in diameter. Angles between elements are 20,9 and 18,7 degree, as I found on internet.

Very interesting project Ivan, getting everything lined up must have been difficult. The best part is you got to spend time with your daughter. Her glue up and paint job look fabulous! Nice work!

I can see it didn’t turn out quite perfect, but it was a very challenging project. I would not have even attempted it.

In spite of the fact that you say it was a woodworking failure, I’ll bet that your daughter was very pleased with it not mention that, I’ll bet that you learned a great deal by the actual undertaking and completion of the project. Congratulations.

Very nice Ivan! I bet it was tough but I am sure your daughter loved it. Especially when she got to help!
