Yuri, I want to say “simply amazing”, but this project can be anything but simple. It is plain to see that many of the projects we are able to admire here at LJ require thorough planning as well as meticulous work and attention to detail to bring about. Your dodecahendrons (I thought those were some extinct prehistoric birds, still have no idea that the heck they are) are off the chart. I’d like to think I’m smart enough to follow and understand most things. The lay out and planning of the dodes here will require a long sit down with a tutor to wrap my noodle around it. Thanks for sharing it and the how to. Where wood work requires many skills we take for granted, I think it can be a great avenue to teach life skills to students where fractions (at least with the English style), measuring and math concepts can be applied to real life. Dodes could be used a little (or a lot) farther down the educamational process.

As I followed threads to get a better idea of what I was looking at here, in your home page Yuri, I found a welcome message from Todd A. Clippinger which I thought really nailed (pun intended) the LJ experience and how your project (and mine) all fit in.

Great Job Yuri!

Stunned, what a patience, and what sence for detail.
