Hello,

Here is my latest Skewb modification. I am not sure as to what the shape is but it looks cool! I am not sure what to name it so if you have any suggestions please let me know!

The puzzle is also for sale. Considering all offers/trades.

Here is the video! Its nothing special. Just a quick demonstration for anyone interested.

Strange!
From which Skewb it was made? Ultimate Skewb? Ordinary Skewb?
With plastic sheets or massive extensions?

Pretty sure I can see a Skewb Ultimate in there. I would say it's cut down with no extensions. Capped with plastic sheet or possible filled.

Correct Tony! The puzzle was cut down from a spare skewb ultimate I had laying around. The puzzle was then filled with a resin+hardener.

Thanks,

4 Days Left!

If you have an offer you would like to make please feel free.

Looks really well made and very clean!

I don't know why but first name that came to mind was the Gyro skewb :? .

Nice work!
