I made light weight type of Wander.
Before (without lightened work) is about 85 grams.
After (with lightened) is about 76 grams.

And strangely, I mistook to bandage some pieces, then I made
brother of "Forest of Wander", largest corner is free, but the axes
are different.
Forest of Wander is U-R-F is 6-5-4 heights order, but this cube
is U-R-F is 5-4-6 order.

I'm planning to finish this cube silver, and want to name it to just "Mirror of Wander". :)
I forgot to take the comparison photo with Forest of Wander, and I didn't stick the Mirror stickers on it.
Then I'll take and upload those photos later.

Great, but you'll have to weigh it again when you add the stickers! I wonder how much heavier it will be then :lol:

When I stuck the cube, only increased about 1 gram.

This scale is for kitchen, then the minimum unit is 1 gram.

And I mistook to check the pattern, it's same of "Forest of Wander".
Then it's not different axes puzzle but same puzzle.

I like the picture with all four of the wanders. Very nice!


Do you have plans to make a wander with black stickers Hidetoshi?

Thank you for your praise. :)
But it's three type, then I'll replace silver stickers to green, and I'll list old one to e-Bay. ;)

Well, I have black mirror sheets, but I didn't imagine about it.
Yes, it's interest to finish by black mirror stickers.

Now I have 5 rest colors, golden, silver, orange, purple, and black.
Then I need to decide the red's name and purple and black name.
Already my image is

red : Rosen garden of Wander (Pair with following "Lavender" ?)
golden : Moon of Wander (Desert is a little severe image for me)
silver : Mirror of Wander
orange : Sunset of Wander
purple : Lavendar garden of Wander ? (Red's axes changed version ?)
black : Darkness of Wander ? (Imagine a little ominous...)

I'm thinking, next "Wander" is brother of "Forest", use largest corner
to free, and only change the axes.
Perhaps I'll use silver for it. ;)
