    Modified from a square to three dollar bills.

    This one was a challenge from Jorge to adopt his model to a dollar bill. The model is made from a square and was too complicated to adopt to a single dollar bill. After several attempts decided to cheat and instead of one dollar, use three. And it worked perfectly. This is a simplified version of the original model. Now that I figured it out, I will be working on the version similar to the original.

    Thanks Jorge for the challenge!

      Congratulations on this achievement, I'm pretty sure the hourglass would be a lot easier to do with a single bill than the yo-yo.

      Thanks! I think the hourglass will be made with 9 dollar bills! I want to keep the same proportions as the original and working on the yo-yo gave me a good sense of how to complete it. Can't wait to see another great model of yours!

      I could this in my sleep.

      The height of the "hourglass" is a simple trig calculation.

      The cap is the diagonal passing through the center of the polygon.

      Another example of passing through the center of the polygon.
