[ASK] Pyramid in a Cube

Given a cube ABCD.EFGH whose side length is 4 cm. If the point I, K, and J is dividing EF, FG, and BF to two equal lengths respectively, determine the volume of pyramid D.IJK!

I think I can work out the pyramid's base area by deriving for the formula of equilateral triangle area. What I can't is determine the pyramid's height. All I knew is that is must be less than 4√3 cm. Anyone willing to help me?

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away.
May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
