This is an awesome list. Thanks for sharing!

One question, did you ever figure out at what angle or height the "tip" of the piece is? I see that the general angle along the side is 81 degrees, but at a certain point, that angle changes to meet together at the top of the piece. Do you know what the general rules for that is?

If that isn't very clear, please let me know and I will elaborate. Thanks!
