Awesome!  You had to destroy "regulation" pyramids to do it, but those
little guys really took one for the team.

They ought to; I basically just cut the tips off of a bunch of the
regular molded pieces.  I used a 1-pointer as a guide for sawing them
off, then sanded the bases flat.  This actually left them a bit
oversized relative to the linear size progression, but they nest
neatly and stack reasonably well if you don't put much on top of them.
And, most importantly, they *look* the right size.
