I just made this, it'll be a small present to give my girlfriend on Valentine's Day. The front is me being sappy, the back is her beloved cat.

Getting the orientation of all the pieces correct for assembly was a bit tough, but luckily I got it all right on my first try. I held my breath after I strung this together while trying to solve it for the first time. Luckily it all worked fine.

All double stringed (strung?) with 16 strings in all. It's a mini magic (each tile is 4cm x 4cm) so - restringing this is a huge pain. Got it done though, I used the tip of a pen to force the string which worked really well (the string would sit between the metal nib and the plastic sloped piece).

I'm glad you told me the back was a cat. From that picture I thought it was a facehugger from Alien, but I see it as a cat now! :lol:

Nice work. I never could string one of those things sucessfully.

I used the guide from here http://cube.garron.us/magic_old.htm (which, in turn, used the guide on Jaap's puzzle page).
