Hi all,
This is my 5x7x7 Tablet Puzzle, I had been making this one at the same time as my 3x5x5 Tablet and got them both finished over the weekend.
Inspired by Traiphum's pillowed 5x7x7 cuboid this was made the same way, but again I shaped it into a cylinder afterwards which gives it this biconvex tablet shape.
Many thanks :)

Size: 68 x 77mm
Weight: 230gm

Looks Amazing!
I might try something like this with the 2x4x4 I just made!

*Love* the shape, so holdable! And such craftsmanship... :D

Did you consider putting only four colours round the edge?

Thankyou everyone :)

@KozehCubes - It will look nice on the 2x4x4 !

@kelvinS - I wasn't sure about the stickering and did consider that, because there are so many ways to sticker a barrel puzzle, but I thought the vertical bands of 3 were the most attractive.
