I have wanted one of these for awhile and I finally got around to making myself one. It wasn't as hard as I was expecting it to be, just time consuming. Its made from a Witeden super 3x3 and a few random 3x3's. The turning is nice, but a few pieces have a slight bit of wiggle room so it does lock up sometimes. I am a big fan of cuboids, and it is a very fun puzzle to solve :]

Nice work. I'm still on the fence regarding whether I should mod my WitEden Super 3x3x3 or keep it as-is. A few years back, I made a lazy man's 3x3x5 cuboid by combining the parts from a Cube4You brand 3x3x4 and cubic 3x3x5. Turning is decent, but the inner slice layers look like square pancakes.

Which I love. My lazy mans 3x3x5 was one of my favorite puzzles. It broke when I moved, though.

If I remember correctly, the original lazy man 3x3x5 cube was hand modded from a 3x3x4? Because it was posted months before C4U announced their cubic 3x3x5. Building mine was super lazy, since I just swapped out parts from both puzzles!!! :solved:
