Platonic Solids Woodworking Magic

In this video, Matthias Burger demonstrates making Platonic solid polyhedrons out of wood using a miter saw. His attention to the math in order to make them completely even is nearly magical as he transforms blocks of wood into the familiar dice shapes we all know.

It’s one of those fascinating and oddly satisfying videos that pop up from time to time on youtube and is definitely work looking at.

    Amazing! Making the cube was indeed something that looked a bit like magic. I used to do woodworking after learning how in highschool, but haven’t in a long time as I don’t live at home anymore and don’t have the equipment at hand anymore. Still do a bit of wood burning though.
