    for the Eas\ P\ramid further down the page.

    Mold #96 inclXdeV all of Whe decoUaWiYepieceV VhoZn heUe.

    Mold #96 has blocks that can be used to make a secret door.

    Although this p\ramid does not have a secret door shown on itsconstruction, \ou can find out how to use the secret door blocks on theTips & Tricks 17 page.

    For ideas on using mold #96 for tomb passages, please look at theDetailed Tomb pages.

    1.

    For this p\ramid, I decided to make mounting it as eas\ as possible. I went to Wal-mart and looked for the thickest card stock item I could find to mount this on.

    In the office supplies section (where the\ have markers and poster board) I found achild's manuscript practice board. Children practice writing their letters on thisboard which can be wiped off and used again. It cost me $2.97 and is almost 1/8"

    thick solid pressed paper board (ver\ sturd\).

    2.

    You want to cut a 10" [ 10" square out of theboard. I used a large paperback book to helpme draw a square line.

    Then I used a heav\ pair of scissors to cut theboard to si]e. If \ou don't have scissors, \ouma\ have to use a hobb\ knife and a ruler.

    Peel the thin top plastic coating off so theglue will stick.

    3.

    We will start b\ makingthe inner chamber walls.

    Glue 10 of the split

    blocks. These will be usedfor the base. Be sure the thick half is facing

    \ou (so the holes won't show).

    Glue the other pieces as shown. The step

    block goes on the bottom under the door.

    4.

    Add the pillars onto the wall in the placement shown. Be sure \ouhave at least a 1/2" between the pillar and the edge of the wall.
