tony, if the size of this cuboid is so much larger than say the 3x3, 4x4 etc, then where do you get your cubies to construct the puzzle out of. Are they from like those giant 9cmx9cm cheap cubes or are they constructed by hand using plastic card? :)

Some are completely new and some are made from lightweight hollow plastic 34mm childrens building blocks. When I made it several years ago I had the idea that this method would be easier. It wasn't however and if I was to make it again I would construct all the cubies from scratch.

Tony, as impressive as all your Skewb-based creations are, as far as I'm concerned, the NxNxN cuboids are the most beautiful. Nicely done. Now if I can just find that spare fortune I have around here somewhere... :D

Tony. may i inquire, how are these puzzles made? i don't mean literally. im just wondering if your designs are confidential, or if they're common knowledge in the puzzle building "community", if you will.

If you use the search option and look in the article section you will find a lot of information about how they are made.

After nearly a week Google has finally made my 2x3x4 video available. It is the same as the other one on the auction but much quicker to download. It can be veiwed here or on the auction page.

Nice video. Yes, that means I don't have trouble with Google video anymore. Instead of a stupid error (sth like "might not be available in your country" (German)), I can now download the .gvp file and play it with their player.
