Just to share...

That's a white stash and some origami paper stuck together with 3M brand 77 spray adhesive.*

If you're going to try this yourself, use just a thin layer of glue and let it get a little tacky before you apply paper to pyramid. Otherwise it acts more as a lubricant than an adhesive -- such a mess. Cleanup requires mineral spirits or somesuch.

* I rely on www.thistothat.com for such advice. "Because," as the site says, "people have a need to glue things to other things."

Cool, thanks. That's perfect.

So what's your building material of choice?  Plain old plywood?

I don't have any solid plans yet, but I wanted the numbers on hand
for noodling purposes.

One idea was to make a wooden PC case. Sooner or later I plan to
replace my old stereo with a computer, and a cherry wood pyramid
would fit into the decor. This is bound to be cheaper than the
metal pyramid case that was posted here. I can picture it now
with the illuminated fan shining up through the metal mesh tip...

Another idea, believe it or not is to make standard-size hollow
pieces out of wood. I have a Rockler store nearby where I can buy
thin wood in various flavors. I bet I could design a jig that
would hold the wood and keep me from losing any fingertips...

Nobody should expect to see either of these from me by Origins.
