When the mass produced version of Justin's Corner Pocket Cube came out labeled as the 'Pocket Cube', I was disappointed to find out that it was much too large to fit in the average person's pocket. As a result, I decided to make my own mini version that could fit in a pocket. It is approximately 33mm in length on every side. The turning is really good for such a small puzzle as well. I have some stickers that should be arriving in a few days that I will use to sticker this puzzle. I am doing a 2 color version with purple for the larger pieces and yellow for the smaller ones. This is my first hand mod and I am very happy with the end result. Here is a picture of the finished but currently unstickered version of the puzzle:

Um, I'm not quite sure to be honest. It's my second smallest 3x3 I own but I can't remember where I originally got it. I think it may have come out of a capsule toy machine a few years ago but I'm not certain. I don't think it is a name brand puzzle though and I'm certain I didn't purchase it online. Either way, it turned surprisingly well once I adjusted the two screws and lubed it.

I had the chance to see two pieces finished at the competition earlier this month. It looks like it turned out very nice.

Yeah I just got around to doing the rest of it this weekend. Haven't had much time lately to work on puzzle stuff.
