VIDEO ADDED


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nT2IY4gM6Q

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I just finished this mod and I call it the Anemoi Cylinder. The puzzle was made from a Fisher Cube that I purchased from Meffert's. Most of the pieces have plastic caps on them on the top and bottom and the rest are filled in with black apoxie sculpt. All the stickers were machine cut and made from Arlon Vinyl.

So a while ago I added a hint to The "hints of secret ideas" thread!!! :-) hinting that I would be cutting a Fisher cube into a Windmill Cube. When I finished I ended up with a regular sized Greenhill cube.

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=16903

After a couple of attempts of contacting Mr. Greenhill to ask his permission to sell the puzzle, and with no reply after several weeks, I decided to cut it down into a cylinder. Most of you know that I have to sell the puzzles I build so I couldn't keep this puzzle for myself and I couldn't sell the cube without Mr. Greenhill's permission. So the Anemoi Cylinder was born.

I will post the video here when it is ready. It will have more info on the sticker pattern. I hope you enjoy.

It looks really nice! I love curved cuts on puzzles, so this one looks great!
I guess the G stands for Greenhill?

The name was changed to Anemoi Cylinder as in my hint. I have been calling it G-Cylinder for so long that I called the puzzle that in the thread.

Apart from the fact that I think you shouldn't have used yellow and white together on one side, I think this is a very cool puzzle. And somehow I find the picture of the puzzle in its scrambled state hilarious.

Thank-you for mentioning this Thomas. There is a lot of the time where I get stuck on the standard type of color scheme since all of the puzzles go to a collector. I have about 25 different colors of vinyl and I really need to start stepping out the box with some of my puzzles and their color.

After watching the video, that makes me want to win the auction. The colour scheme is incredibly awesome, it looks great!
