Although I have personally been super busy with other activities
and have not done much stringing (or casting) lately, I still have some news:
A friend (Joel) asked me to post about two nice magic designs he did lately.

Here is his post in the cube4you forum:

Comments are welcome!

My 8 Panel Magic Squares and Magic Box

My 8 panel magic squares has two solutions per side; four squares each for one side and three squares each on the other. The are more than one solution for each side in some cases (the opposing side will be different). The solution colors will remain consistent; except for solution 1b as stated below. There are some other interesting patterns besides the solutions shown here.

Side 1. Reference for construction.

Same as the first pic. Solution 1a.

Solution 1b. There is a symetric solve (the open space to the top right) with red on top, brown-black-orange from left to right, and there are symetric solves with the open space to the right, green on top, yellow-black-orange from left to right and with the open space to the left, green on top, orange-black-yellow from left to right, respectively. The change of colors is obtained by using the 6 flip algorithm in the opposite direction.

My magic box is similar to Kastellorizo's dino magic box but I replaced the dino with squares.
