Hi all,
This is my 3x5x5 Tablet Puzzle mod, the name came from its shape but this puzzle was inspired by Tom & Dan's Pillowed 3x5x5, and also Traiphum's pillowed 5x7x7.
I made the puzzle exactly the same way, but afterwards just shaped it into a cylinder as well, which gave it this biconvex tablet shape. Also, after seeing 63falcondude's 3x5x5, I also pillowed mine a little deeper as I liked the look of the black circle that appears around the center cap, I thought it looked good with the circular shape of the puzzle.
Cheers :)

This is a really nice variation on the regular 3x5x5.
As always, great craftsmanship.

Thankyou :)

I like working with plastic sheet, but its also always enjoyable to make puzzles like this with the dremel in the garage.
