Description

Make a House of Cards

gradient divider

There are several ways to build a house of cards. The “classic” method that you may have seen in popular media is based on a series of triangular trusses that peak to a point in a card pyramid. Many professional card-stackers, however, start their structures with a four-card cell or “lock box”, which forms a much more stable foundation for complex designs.
