How would you go about making a wooden pyramid? Answered
I'm trying to make a wooden pyramid, preferably triangle based, but from what I can find square would be easier, with a specific sized face.
I wanted the faces isosceles triangles with 3 7/8 in bases, 4 1/4 in tall, with base angles working out to be 65.5 degrees - the angles are important, the lengths can stand to be varied.
I went ahead and made a mock up, but the 30 degree edge cuts left me with an odd sort of 3d kite instead of a pyramid.
So how can design a pyramid with a specific face size, either triangle or square based.
