After the even numbers I decided to have a go at number five and came up with this: a dodecahedron table light in the form of a flower bud. As far as the “bud” look is concerned I think that I must work on it still, at night it looks rather halloweenish. It was a complex project to realise; the dodecahedron is made of 64 individual pieces and the pillar (stem) of ten. It was just a first try to see what I can come up with and so I used some scraps of Douglas fir, poplar and maple that I had lying around

Nice job. Looks like there was a lot of “figurating” on this one with all the angles/compound angles. A good use of scrap and a novel light, for sure.

Less is more, so 5 is better that 6. It looks really nice. But then again, I’m a big fan of dodecahedrons: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/76674

Goodness, you do amazing work. This is not an outdoor piece, is it?
