Hi everyone,

Just finished up these two mods. They are a Square-2 Hexagonal Prism and a Junior (2x2) Hexagonal Prism.

The Square-2 Hex. Prism was made from a Square-2 and the Junior Hex. Prism was made from a Rubik's Brand 2x2. Both puzzles were capped with ABS plastic sheet and gaps between the extended pieces were filled with black Apoxie Sculpt. The stickers were cut with my vinyl cutter and I used Arlon Graphics and Oracal Vinyl for the puzzle.

I hope to film the video for both puzzles today and I will post here when it is uploaded. Hope you enjoy.

Your hand mods have such an exceptional quality to them; it just baffles me how well you are able to do hand mods. Well done yet again.

I like it, but I think that the cuts and the rounding of the edges is too wide. It just doesn't look natural.

But I'm not saying that I don't like these puzzles. They're great.
