A week ago, before I went on vacation, I'd built two puzzles from several 3x3x3's my dad bought from china. (they were YJ, if you're wondering.) One was an evil twin 4x4x4, and another is a 2x2x3 siamese which isn't really worth showing. I'll be selling it by offer, but here are some pics :D
note- I specifically used YJ cubes because they have relatively 'solid' cubies without huge gaps, and use a smaller circle inside, making it 'deeper cut' (?).

solved

size comp

one face turned

two faces turned

four faces turned

I would have liked to use black cubes, but sadly there were none floating around. I'll possibly make more, if there's interest. Also, does anyone know who first made this puzzle?

thanks for watching, sj :D

EDIT: for sale here

That's pretty cool. I wonder if you could make one out of void cubes...

That looks great! Hopefully in the future I'll be able to make my own. Well done!

BUMP- I have a new VIDEO for it, I hope that the example of the turning will encourage some people to buy it off of me. It's still open- no offers yet...
sorry for the somewhat bad quality, it was taken in bad lighting...

hope you like!
thanks for watching,

It really does matter. If you aren't going to show it, it won't be able to go on the list. But I strongly encourage you share- even if that means more work for me.

If Apollo hasn't done it, he probably has a better project in mind.
If Tony hasn't done it, he is likely sewing the fabric of the Universe so that when he does do it, we're well prepared.
If Andreas hasn't done it, he is probably still making every convex mod in existence before moving on to the voids.
If Incredible hasn't done it, he is likely tired of cube mods.
If Cooldayr hasn't done it, he is probably broke trying to afford two more void Petaminxes for fusion.
If Oskar hasn't done it, it's too regular of an idea.

Off topic, I just made a new meme!
