here are 2 more products of my attempts to build a cube that hasn't been built before :lol: i find myself running out of cubes. :lol: the 3/8 truncated cube has the same cuts as an HT, but with shallower cuts on certain angles. the other is a confused pillow without doing all of the cuts. if these aren't new, i've got my hopes up about my next 3 :twisted:

here's a vid showing them a little bit, it also shows the painted cube that i mentioned earlier.

Nice mod :) Fuzzy pictures :(

If you can't get macro mode working on your camera, step back a few feet, then crop the image. It is much better to get a focused picture where you trim out half the image than a high res fuzzy image. Cameras these days (even cell phone cameras) have enough res that you will probably do fine even cutting to just the center of the image.

The first one looks very much like the Cushion cube:

The others are really new.

yay :D I will try your advice about the pics and get new pics, i will get my tripod set up so that it won't be so shaky. haha, when i saw that you were the last person to reply andreas, I was afraid of bad news :lol: unfortunately, i just fractured my arm, so it will be harder to finish up my last couple mods, and then take a break for a month or so. BTW, here are the links to the auctions,
