The All Five : Platonic Solids Puzzle 40 Years in the Making

May 11th, 2005 | Filed under: Design, Mathematics | 30 Comments »

Dr. Wayne Daniel, a retired physicist and puzzle expert, has designed and fabricated an interlocking wooden puzzle called ‘The All Five’ that is a complete set of Platonic solids. The puzzle is made of solids within solids beginning with a tiny tetrahedron, then octahedron, cube, dodecahedron, and finally the icosahedron, all without any voids in between.
