Hello everyone,
I just finished the body of one of the puzzles that lie in the box of oblivion,
it is a modification of the equatorial slice of an axis cube further turned into an hexagonal dipyramid shape, turn perfect and is very refined like all my puzzles, being a puzzle, of the box of oblivion has been used my usual techniques (a lot of work).

Has that been polished to within an inch of its life? Or spray painted? Either way, nice build.

it took me a long time to realize that it was a way of saying, but finally I found a fairly accurate translation, then I'll answer the same way, The item has been polished down to the bone :wink: , I come from old wood restoration school, so, for me doesn't exist spray painting, I use my method to obtain opaque, semigloss, mirror polished plastic, the techniques I use are inspired by the wood restoration;

Thank you very much for your good question;

Best regards
Rafael

Hello Mr. Kevinnguyen

is't a modification of the handle of a bass that I have done; (from fretted to fretless), the techniques that I use when i create my puzzles are closely related to this and much more it's only an example related to my latest post;

So Axis with middle layer turn out and while modding then cut into Hexagonal Di-pyramid right?
It could be, i have maked a flat surface, extended some parts, and after an cutted into HD;

Thank you
Rafael

P.s. if mate is partner, friend, yes i play it, but not very good because I wanted to study in depth only 3 years of academy so i'm not Jaco Pastorius :)

Hello, I am aware that good classical guitars costing a fortune, try putting 1 set of classical nylon strings on acoustic?, i play Bass guitar, my brother plays guitar if you want i send you a link via pm for Utube channel;

I have also maked an Axis HD, If you don't want the work will be sold for 20 USD you ask a fixed price or an auction with reserve etc. and the problem is solved :)

Well have a nice week
