The best gift ever since I'm cubing
My wife's father has a professional carpenter friend. They made this to me together.

I think I will not write more about it.
The pictures tell you everything:

Soon I'll upload more photos where you will understand what this table is good for. :wink:

PS.: If you are interested in something like this, you can contact my wife (sarolta[dot]panczel[at]gmail[dot]com), She will help you translate between you and the carpenter

WOW!!!! That does look NICE!!! I'd love to see the mech/insides. Also do 4 of the corners have wheels attached to them? I can tell its not sitting directly on the floor and I can see the hint of something under there in your second to last pic. However since yellow is opposite white I see you have two of the bottom corners on the top in your first pic so maybe what ever its sitting on isn't attached to the cube. However in all your other pics it appears the 4 corners with white stickers are on the top of the cube.

You've got a great wife, father-in-law, and keep that carpenter friend too. You are one lucky guy.

Carl

You must never use that as a table! And don't ever cover it up with a tablecloth. What is your best solve time? Is it finger-trickable :D And for Andreas:

What is its edge length?
What is its weight?

OK, it looks you think it is a fully functional cube.
Of course I wanted you to believe it, but now the truth:

It is FF in one way, but I rather say it is a 1x1x3 cube with changeable tiles.

All the side's surface (except the top face) has strong magnets. and there are small metal sheets applied to the tiles, so they are changeable.
That s the reason that you can see all the colors in the above pictures.

The most interesting thing are that it has 3 drawers.

The size is 60cm x 60cm x 60cm + the wheels under it.
I did not measure the weight but it is heavy! I think it is about 30-40 kg

Oh that is very very sneeky. I was guessing something was up with the wheels but I hadn't put it together.

Yes. And I like the presentation even more.

Where's this item listed at Shapeways? :wink: :scrambled:

(wouldn't want to learn the price for such over there..... (although they are currently charging 20% off their WhiteStrong material))

Thank you for asking my questions. Sometimes I forget that.
