This is the pyramid cabinet. The pyramids are made out of mdf as idividual squares. They were cut standing on the saw. I can’t remember the angle but I think it was somewhere’s between 5 and 10 degrees. They were then biscuited together and put on a jig I made to pull them all together tight and square. The doors have touch latches so there is no ugly hardware. The finish is lacquer paint.

That’s the nicest MDF I’ve seen. I like the way light plays the angles. Thank you for sharing.

Did you use an automotive paint on the cabinet? Looks like a car-quality finish.

Wow, nice job. I tried making similar squares out of red oak using 12 deg angle with a standing cut on the TS. I was never able to get all 4 lines to hit the corners.

I really like this piece! I have done one in a similar vein and I understand the work you went through to make this come out square. Mine was done with four tapered veneers for each pyramid that were then veneered to a substrate. Each of the four pieces were tapered from 1/4” at the point to 1/16” at the outer edges.

Here is what mine looked like;

The pyramid surface really adds texture to the piece.

That’s quite a finish. I’ve never seen MDF look like that. Well done!

I echo John’s comment. It is very hard to make small things into three dimensional squares, the starting point for the pyramids. I had real trouble when I tried to make the puzzles that GaryK posted a few days ago. Forty something cubes I think. On cheap equipment no less. Whew!

Good work!
