5-layer face turning octahedron
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A face turning octahedron with five layers with almost proportional pieces.

This is not the first face turning octahedron with five layers but this represents the missing link between the Master Face Turning Octahedron and the 6-layer face turning octahedron, that was presented earlier by the same designer.
The Royal Octahedron came earlier but has a different set of pieces.

A first version of this puzzle was presented by Katelyn Neily in 2016 but never finished. See image 5.
She used nails to anchor down the corners so as to keep her puzzle fully proportional, Seth Holiday went with a slightly different technique of adding a slight curve to the outer cuts in order to make room for the corners to be properly anchored in.

Stickers were cut by Jason Gavril.
Edge length: 99 mm
