Hi Everyone,

After a long time of working on this puzzle off and on, I am finally finished. This a 5x5 Dodecahedron that I modified from a V-Cube 5. All of the pieces were capped with ABS plastic sheet. All of the stickers were machine cut using Oracal and Arlon Graphics Vinyl. Each piece was modified, sanded 5 times, and polished so I am happy that my hands will have a little bit of rest tomorrow :D . I am uploading the video now, but in the mean time here are a few pictures. Hope you enjoy.

Well done Kyler, I think this is you best puzzle yet. In all honesty I wouldn't have expected you to make one, or something that complex to make by hand with extending the pieces, but you really proved me wrong! :D

Amazing job, the cuts on it are very pleasing aswell.

That was a 6x6x6. I have a feeling that Kyler may be making another puzzle very similar to this in the future...

It is extended by about 5mm.

I am always hesitant to say that it is a first since there a lot of builders out there, so I will say that it is the first that I have seen. :D Claus did indeed build a 6x6.

Thank-you very much. Unfortunately I do have to sell this puzzle. But I am sure it will go to a good home.


Here is the video for the puzzle. I hope you enjoy.

Well... five is my favourite number, and this puzzle is a pentagon 5x5x5.
It cannot get better than that!

In fact, the dodecahedron shape was regarded as the platonic solid corresponding
to the fifth (mysterious and unknown) element, while the number of its faces
is even related to the Olympian Gods, i.e. Dodecatheon.

But what am I saying, you are Apollo, you *know* that already!

;)

Capping the curved pieces must have been challenging. It looks perfect!

The faces look like they're smiling with their curvy cuts x12 :)
