Hello cubers.
I believe most of you know, how to make a 3x5x7 from a 7x7.
The common way is to extend 2 of the puzzle faces and truncate the other 2, in order to create 3 different lengths.
What I though is, what if I extended 2 faces a bit and also extend the other 2 faces a bit more, that would also give me 3 different lengths.
If you do the exact opposite, meaning to truncate 2 faces a bit and truncate the other 2 faces a bit more, that would also give me 3 different lengths.
So I did create 2 "different" 3x5x7 puzzles with the technics mentioned above.
I think that both puzzles turned out very nice, but you will be the judge for that.
The "all extended" 3x5x7 is made from a mini 7x7, and the "all truncated" puzzle is made from a regular 7x7.
Videos of the puzzles are available:

Hope you like them.

Both puzzles look great. Nice job.
