I have never been good with cameras, but I set up a free website, http://mytwistypuzzlescollection.synthasite.com/. I will periodically update this when I make some more cubes. Please tell me what you think, and all of my cubes are up for sale for any aranged price (special arangment will be needed for the mental block for respect to Tony Fisher).

Could you do a separate picture for each puzzle? I'd love to buy some of your customs. :D

Cool mods. Are you the one that made a video of the mental block and said that you would be selling it?

The 2x2x4 has been sold.

[url=http://www.tiex.de\cubecorner\images\2x2x4.jpg]scrambled[/url]
Today I got your 2x2x4. It really is a nice puzzle and as you (hopefully) can see, I already scrambled it. So I have to solve it now before I can take the pics to add it to my website. You are right, the puzzle turns really smooth. Because the way you glued it together, it helped me also to understand, how you did it (once you've seen it it looks straight forward and clear. That's always the way, if people (here: me) don't use their own brain before..).
If it is possible for you with future designs I'd propose to think about closing also the open sides of the cubies with plastic sheet. It makes a puzzle look more complete and will probably achieve a higher price. But I don't want to awake the impression, that I am not happy with the puzzle I got. Not at all!


I have started capping since the creation of my 2x2x4.

btw, since none of the cubes have been sold at their set value, you can now make an offer on any of them.
