This is a Archimedian Shape known as a “Snub Dodecahedron” It consists of 12 Pentagons and 80 Triangles. 92 pieces total. The Pentagons are mitered at 13.535 Deg. The Triangles are mitered at 7.9123. This object is approx. 10” in diameter and has a wall thickness of approx. 5/8”.

As you can see from the Picture it was made back in 2013. As such it’s finish has tarnished a bit. When I first started building these things some very experience Segmented Woodturners told me that expansion and contraction over time would destroy the piece. This one is 5 years old and going strong. I have some that are close to 7 years old. So, I think I have proved the experts wrong.

Know what you mean about the so called experts. I have also been told some of my segmented pieces would fail. None so far.
Your Snub Dodecahedron is a thing of beauty . Would love to give one a try sometime. Well done sir.
