As many of you will know, I have been a member of this forum for some years. I don't post a great deal but do visit most days and enjoy reading all threads.
I am a collector firstly, but also enjoy solving all kinds of puzzle (current 3x3 avg is just over 33 seconds).
Like many members I have a large collection, which until now has been stored in boxes all over the place....until now!!! We have just had an extension built and I have bought 2 lovely glass fronted display cabinets (I just need to build them from flat-packs first.........there's a puzzle in itself!). Today I slung all my dust covered puzzles across the floor and intend to install them properly on display. I have started this thread, largely as a kick up the jacksee to myself to get a move on and get it done. I will post a pic when finished. In the meantime here are some pics of part of my dust covered collection.........

Impressive collection, I look forward to seeing it in the cases!

What other custom/rare puzzles do you have? (I spotted Christophers jewel, Cylinder cube, pyracue, white octahedron, dino cube and fisher cube!)

Some exceptional items in your collection! :)

I can't wait to see the magics displayed, as I have never seen some of them ever before!

Dude. You bumped a 6 month old post to say that?
Since you're new here, you should read up on the rules of the forums. One of them is about bumping old threads.

Flambore, it is not entirely his fault. As topics are being moved into here, older topics appear to be new as they are on the first page. There are only a couple of threads in this forum right now, so it is an understandable mistake.

You shouldn't bump old threads though.

Yes, it is certainly understandable given the circumstances.

Richard was also the Slim Tower winner in my Christmas 2005 random giveaway. I think I spotted his prize among his puzzles.

Although I don't have any authority besides moving posts, I would like to request that nobody will post in this topic anymore. It is six months old anyways.

To bring this thread back up to date, I have at last rehoused my puzzles and have begun the task of posting them online. I have a long long way to go but will try and add a few more each day. They can be viewed at http://www.twistylist.com

Great gallery, Richard!

I have just begun surfing through your collection.
A very interesting Deluxe chapter was the first to catch my eye.
Thank you for those pictures of cubes I heard of but never saw photographed or even didn't know.
I'm speaking of the orange logo cube, and both the stickered versions.
This is a real pleasure. Thank you for sharing!

Very very true, and I am very very impressed by that gallery.
Thanks for sharing your collection photos Richard!

There are 3 siamese variations missing. *just kidding*
The blind man variations are very cool.
