This is my first square-2 puzzle that doesn't involve filling or casting. This one is all cutting and capping with sheet plastic. I am very pleased at how nicely this one turned out. It is as clean as I could have hoped for. It turns like a dream, and is nice and light, since it's not filled.

My first attempt at one of these was a disaster. I used one of those cheap $2 square-1's from cube4you. It was horrific. My second attempt at one was a little better, but was uneven because I cut it with a dremel, and filled it with polyester filler. For this one, I used a razor saw, and cut the caps out of .02" sheet plastic, glued, then sanded with 400, 800 and 1600 grade sandpaper.

That is beautiful! :shock: After seeing a few other puzzles being made using the sheet plastic I've decided that's the way to go with mods like these. I'm going to make one of these also, and I was going to fill the pieces, but now I'm convinced that using sheet plastic will look and function so much better. I always thought that the weight would be somewhat of an issue if I filled it, but now I don't have to worry about that. :wink:

Great job! :D

In general bumps like this are not good form and we have policy (#10 of the rules) about it.

There will be a few people who have bought one of Frank's puzzles and are happy to receive it and show it off. A new thread per person is perhaps too many but I would rather not have people bumping threads either.

Better perhaps would be to wait until you receive it, take a picture and then post in the Celebrate Frank's puzzles thread.
