Thanks for trying to find a classification for me, guys, but maybe we'll stumble upon it later. We might go with this name unless someone comes up with something better. Very pleased with the final outcome, and I like how it mixes up.

I really like this one Wayne! The craftmanship is getting better and better... Maybe you should start producing them for mass sale. (mass = us i guess...)

Most of all, thanks for showing it messed up. Usually you only see rare items all solved or perhaps with one side turned. Seeing it messed up almost makes up for the fact that i will never own one!

Sooooooo good!

What did you do to create the center pieces for the triangular, deep-cut sides?

...half of the corners are truncated. (ie 4 out of 8 corners)

Not 100% sure what you mean, but the centre triangles are corner cubies. The whole face got savaged on a grinder. They were filled with black polyester resin first. Then I filed everything nicely and rounded the edges.

Of course -- that makes perfect sense! When I first tried to visualize it, I couldn't imagine that there would be enough left to the cubies to allow for simple filling and capping. You sure do a fine job of finishing these pieces. Great work!
