The triangle molds, while simple looking, are designed to be a jamming point for sticks in my flume.

Here is the triangle cut:

Here is the actual cut piece. This has clay I used to have a small mold space for my part.

The final mold wasn’t perfect, as demonstrated by the hole, but it is good enough.
