I realize that i will never get a domnioe, unless i want to spend a thousand dollars on Marcumstr's auction on ebay. But, i do want a 3x3x2 to play with.
Is there anyone who can make one for me to trade? i would also be willing to buy, if i cant trade.

i have studied the drawings thouroghly (sp?)
and i cant see why it is so hard to do.
it is simply mocking up pieces of a cube,and gluing them to a smaller cube.
it seems a giant (89 or 90mm) cube and a 57mm are the best for this. The pieces seem to fit perfectly.
I just am hesitant to try this.
If i screw up my giant, i need to order a new one from hendrik, and just one puzzle is pricy. cost me $30 for this thing shipped. its great though. Stickers are not great, but i finally got vinyl yesterday.

You don't have to pay US$1000 for a Domino Tyler or anybody reading this, I might be selling one for half the price (FREE postage worldwide) but just to gauge the demand, anyone interested b4 I decide to get it on eBay.
I need some extra cash for my car repair :(

Go to a place that does Automotive decals, or a sign making place.
Just ask them for sheets of vinyl decals.
You can have them cut it (expensive)
or cut it yourself with an X-Acto knife or a scissor

I'll probably email Tyler a few more cool pics of the Domino in action, I have another Domino but it's in the closet with several other duplicate puzzles but I feel utterly lazy to take it out, with all the dust that accummulated over the years ;(
Anyway, Tyler would be kind enough to host some of my pics for a while..but later in the day I guess!
thanx for asking Carter!
