Wow!
I didn't think it was possible using the original 5x5x5.
I thought the previous 5x5x5 cubohedron was made from an Eastsheen cube.
This one looks great.
Nice to see you on the forum Tony.

Amazing! Who would have thought it could look like that. The rest of us looked at the parts and assumed that it just could not be done, but you, Tony, looked deeper into the possibilities. That's what makes your work a cut above!

(Please excuse the puns.)

Without wishing to sound like an oscar speech, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the people on this forum for all their kind remarks about my puzzles both now and over the years. I'd especially like to thank those who have supplied me with puzzles and help.
I've barely touched a computer in 20 years and I hope people will make allowances. I'm still not totally convinced that it saves time but I guess that will change.
The Truncated 5x5x5 cuboctahedron actually came about by accident. I was going to make a normal 5x5x5 cuboctahedron but started cutting in the wrong place. I continued anyway and was rather surprised that it didn't fall apart and also at the unusual pattern that appeared. Unfortunately the movement is not great. The "corner" centres tend to twist sometimes and the side rotations are not smooth. It's another one of those transformations that kind of pushes the boundaries of possibility. At this time I am not sure if I will make more.

I don't see anything wrong with Oscar speeches

Over the years you have been so prolific in producing new custom puzzles,
but again, the twisty community is in awe !

Man, there are even the "Tony Awards"! You guys are lucky :D

I don't have any of your puzzles but I've always admired them. Keep up the excellent work (ever thought about the Gigaminx? ;-))!

Dang! Very nice work, Tony. And it's great to see you here.

The curved lines give a slightly confusing edge to the whole thing. Love it.

I don't have a photo Etienne. My puzzles are all over the place and in many cases I only own a tatty prototype. I might put the best ones together for a photo sometime but it would take a while to find everything.
I may be a little late but congratulations on your amazing 7x7x7. I'd love to see a black one with stickers.
