Hey Everyone,

This is my Giant Magic ! 32cm * 64cm with 16cm tiles.
It's made out of Braided nylon strings, thick condensed polystyrene sheets and a Dremel. It took me about 5 hours to make correctly after restringing 3 times. I'm glad it's done ^^

It's a good thing to replace the string in between the two steps of the solve :)

I will offer it to the winner of the Magic at the Magic Open 2012 in France (Vesoul probably) but I'll fight hard to keep it, although I have some pretty nasty sub-1 average competitors ^^

I even made a 30 second solve video :lol:

Enjoy !

Greg

That's pretty cool. How durable is the material? Like is it going to wear out from regular use?

I don't thinks so it's pretty sturdy and the more i use it the more the material under the strings stacks up and the harder it gets.

Cool puzzle. I would have liked to of seen a little more effort making the tiles look nicer around the edges, but apart from that, good job! :)

I wonder how tough using 2ft x 2 ft pieces of quarter inch plywood and some paracord would be...
