I have done a lot of work on this puzzle and it is finally nearing completion! I have done a little more touch up painting since these pictures where taken. I'm leaving town tomorrow and won't be able to sticker it for a couple of days.

Tell me what you think!

I used 4x4x4 pieces. I burned through 5 4x4x4s to make this.

I first thought it was made from mini 2x2x2s (don't know if that's possible). :)
I expect it's quite light.

It is very heavy.

That is NOT a keychain cube in the picture.

It is approximately 20 cm tall.

Sorry the picture is bad quality.

omg. that is awesome! i do recall myself wanting to build a 4x4x6 in a topic and then someone posted a tony fisher article of some sort where it explains how to build a correctly proportioned 2x2x6. anyways, very nice work. (btw, you should try building a smaller 2x2x5 or 2x2x6 out of keychain 4x4's instead of using rubik brand.)

If you mean using an East Sheen 4x4x4, I don't think that's possible. The 4 center pieces would need to be able to rotate independently from the other pieces. You can achieve that with a Rubik's 4x4x4 by rounding off these pieces. To my knowledge this won't work with an East Sheen.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Rubix-Rubik-Cube-2- ... 286.c0.m14

I believe these are knock-off East Sheen 4x4x4's. Someone just put a key chain on it.
It says they are 8cm. Not really small. Genuine East Sheens are 7cm. I don't think they come any smaller.

I'm back from my trip! I'm waiting for my vinyl sheets to arrive from cubesmith before I can sticker this. I will post more pictures when I have it finished and stickered.

I have the designs for a much smaller 2x2x5, but I just need to get around to building it.

Nobody is born with these skills, its something that each and every person has to learn. And I'm going to go ahead and say that everyone is capable of learning to make puzzles. :) Find a throw away 3x3 and see what you can do.

Why on earth did they put a keychain on a 7x7x7cm puzzle?

I guess it would be harder to loose your keys, but other than that it seems kind of absurd.

Oh my gosh I finally get how those outer pieces hang on! :D :D :D Never thought about that. Using that technique, I want to see someone make a 2x2x8!

I think that the 2x2x6 is the limit if you dont want to use ball bearings like Tony did with his 2x2x7.

I don't think so. I spend way too much time thinking about 2x2xN puzzles...

This looks very, very good.
Tony Fisher once told me how difficult it is to actually build this puzzle and how difficult it is to get it stable.
This looks like it is very stable indeed and equally well made.

Congratulations on a great puzzle.
