Dents in wood
Posted February 12, 2014
Sand down the points a little bit to make them flat. That should prevent any denting of the wood!

Product is OK ... what's really annoying is packaging in a ten pack, meaning one or two are always wasted.

I have been using painter pyramids for around 4 or 6 years, ever since they came out. My old ones are great. These new ones dent your wood. My table tops weigh between 5 lbs and 15 lbs depending on which size I am making. I use the pyramids only when spray finishing so it's not like I am putting any pressure on the top when they are on the pyramids. With these new pyramids I had dents in the three tops I was making 1 at 15 lbs and 2 at 5 lbs. With my original pyramids I do not have that problem. My old pyramids and the new ones are made by the same company. Not sure why the new ones dent and the old ones do not except that the tip on the new ones are a little different and the plastic seems different then the old ones. Guess I will go back to using finishing nails in scrap wood or Styrofoam.

These seemed much better than using nails driven through scrap pieces of wood so put them on my Christmas list. Wish I'd read the reviews as I too found it dented my maple panel on a box project. You'd think the Maple would of been hard enough but I wiped down the oil while the project was sitting on the pyramids - won't do that again!

I experienced a problem with denting the base of a cherry plywood bookcase when I supported it during final finishing on 5 pyramids. The points are too sharp and can generate very high prssures with a heavy piece.
