« Part 1: Making ball and first holes Part 2 of Five layer ball series Part 3: Polishing and stand »


Four of those pegs to be made to hold dodecahedrons inside the sphere


One is crewed in to the insert for proper centering the ball


If all is well the center will be in the CENTER place


Like so, all holes can be made.
.
And now getting to the last hole. Dodecahedrons inside have to be locked.

The fit has to be as tide as possible. Paraffin or candle wax used to secure internal structure


There pins/pegs on the front and one will hold the back


.
Next is the series of the last hole pictures:





Finally, all holes are made. Cleaning and polishing left to do.

Amazing. Beautiful physically and mathematically.

I’m reminded of Edgar Allen Poe ‘All we are or seem is but a dream within a dream.’
