20 Sided Die

Recommended Posts

I made a 20 sided die (singular) for my art class using 14 gauge 3/8"ID galvanized rings around 14 gauge wire-framed triangles with 30 gauge wire dream catchers weaved in the middle.

Here is a picture half done

Here are some more pictures at various angles

What weave did you use? I can't quite make it out from the pictures.

I Don't really know how to explain it really... its like a box made around a wire. Its a captive weave I suppose because of that.

It is very simple. It is perhaps box 2 in 1 chain? some rings are connected to only two rings while some are connected to four. Together they surround the wire-frame.. which are just 20 individual triangles wrapped in that weave i explained and then connected in about 4 places on each triangle "hinge" area.

Have you thought about weaving the numbers on to each side using wire? I think it would look really neat, if you were able to get the numbers legible enough. Plus, then you would be able to use it when you played DnD! <.<

How much does it weigh? And does it deform at all when placed on the table as opposed to being hung?

I am going to attach leather numbers tomorrow ^_^... and yes it does kinda move/flex a little bit when you put it on a flat surface, but I'm going to be fixing that soon hopefully since I Just thought of a better joining method.

As far as weight... I have nothing that could measure it accurately, but its "pretty heavy", as I've heard from some .

Btw did you change your name?

Screen name, yes. I was Kridiot, now I'm MabusMaille as I've started a business and didn't want to make a separate account. You can find me on facebook too ;P I'm working on getting more and better quality photos as well. ^_^

Well its later than tomorrow but I updated the pictures on the original post to show the leather numbers I put on and the more solid construction I used to join the triangles. There is also a better picture of how I weaved it. It's not sturdy enough to roll around on the ground (as long as its a flat place with no bumps or something.. like no logs.. that would break the dream-catcher weaved stuff.).

In any case enjoy!
