Has anyone used these to build with? They look like a good idea and would make building. These are some pics of a scale model of a star plate bulding that im playing with.

Hi Richard,

I'd done a search online before to see if there were any people who had used them and found this link:

a detailed site by someone who built a cabin with them

hope this helps you.

HI, was searching for 'star plates' and found this. And yes, they make lovely buildings! I made a greenhouse with a set in 1992 and it is still standing!
It has been morphed into a garden gazebo but remains very serviceable. We are replacing a few of the two by fours that are a bit grungy but other than that, I hope to get another 20 years out of it.
