The most impressive thing is the total symmetry. The fact that this puzzle doesn't shapeshift even a little bit with the amount of pieces and space going on here is really amazing!

Stunning puzzle, Dan is one lucky guy to have that unique puzzle in his collection. About how many hours work does something like this take? And please don't tell me you hand cut all of those stickers, they are too perfect!

Very nice photos, too! :)

That's so awesome, just the other day I saw CBC's vid on guessing what it would be, and he guessed this...
It's so awesome, it looks really incredible, and all the pieces and stickers are cut to perfection.

You're a great puzzle modder!

I asked myself the same question as Gus: How many hours did this take?

It hard to say how many hours that I take on this puzzle because :
1. I use epoxy resin for this job it need time1-2hrs for its dry before do other job on it. I extend it side by side.
2. It need complete dry 1-2 day before I sand it with a dremel, sand paper rough, fine and finer.
3. I dont make only one puzzle in a time there are dozen of dozen. So why that? cuz when I mixed the epoxy I cant do just for a puzzle when it left I use it for other puzzle. When I wait for epoxy dry I dont only sit for waiting I worked on other puzzle.
4. I dont do puzzle work every day or just official day
5. I start make this puzzles after Dan asked me but I never tell him and I forgot what the date around 2-3 month ago.
I have sanding wheel that save my work from whole day to few minute.
And because I make many puzzle in a time so finish time to late :lol:

And yes, Gus sticker not hand cut haha I am just a man.
There is many story with this sticker process I take it 3 days. Normally it take a hour or lower for machine cut but this is crazy.

Bah! I am so disappointed that you cannot cut your own stickers :lol: But the rest of your work is almost beyond belief, I hope to own one of your puzzles one day.
