Abstract: For a very simple family of self-similar sets with two pieces, we prove, using a technique of Solomyak, that the intersection of the pieces can be a Cantor set with any dimension in as well as a finite set of any cardinality . The main point is that the open set condition is fulfilled for all these examples.
