Hello my friends.
A little bit longer then two months ago Tanner offered masters for building 4x4x3 viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22366
I wanted this puzzle for a long time, that's why I asked him for them. He was so nice to send it to me for free (Thanks Tanner!).
So, I've built my 4x4x3. The weight of this puzzle is about 500gr and dimensions are 88x88x68mm. Turning quality is good but... I decided to build another 4x4x3 using Jin's method:
http://chrono.org/puzzles/3x4x4.html
Now I have two 4x4x3 cuboids and next week bigger one will be for sale on ebay. (I have permission from Tanner). Smaller one will stay in my collection.

They both look awesome!Haha, the 4x4x3 is a cuboid I've always wanted, it's a shame it's not mass produced yet.

Beautiful, as always!

I assume those are tiles from dollar store cubes?

Absolutely fantastic. I really do love the 4x4x3 cuboid, and the tiles on the puzzle make it look pretty epic. Congratulations on the good builds. :)

They look absolutely beautiful!
Handbuilt puzzles from you always stand out :)
I have had a long time wish for building one (Jin method) as well. But as there is a shapeways version, I can't see myself invest all the time needed.
For everyone's interest, could you please share any tips for building this puzzle?

For big 4x4x3 I used tiles from big 4x4x4:

For small one - http://cube4you.com/cube4you-full-tile- ... apso2ue8g7

Now it on ebay:AUCTION

If someone want to build own 4x4x3 and have time, extra V- 6x6x6 and supplies for that, I will send masters for free. Send me PM if you interested.
