I guess it was inevitable that I would make this sooner or later. To be honest though I only recently thought of doing this rather simplified version. Putting holes through a Mental Block in all three directions would have looked very messy in my opinion I feel this looks better yet.

Very nice. I like it a lot. Good work. And I agree, it would have looked messy if it was done on all six centers. :)

very nice. I would like it better if the holes were a bit bigger though. all 6 centers would have looked quite odd.

If it were trimmed to be octagonal it wouldn't look so messy. :)

Quite in fact that might be pretty cool.

I could spend days at your house just messing with all of your crazy Rubik's Cubes. Well designed!

I love it! (Master) Mental Blocks are my favorite puzzle! :lol:

I've always wanted to do this, even before Mizzle Suggested it while building his.

And I love the idea of making one void through all 6 centers, but it would indeed look messy unless octogonal.

How about a mental block built from a minimal twist? Now THERES a challenge! :shock:

Wonderful work as always tony, but If I'm not mistaken, couldnt this just be made by combining parts from a mental block and a holey skewb without any extra midification? Easiest mod ever! :lol: (only joking)

And where would you get the Mental Block from?

Theoretically, you, unless said person wishes to start a blood feud with every member of the forum :lol:
