Here is my new variation on the X-block. I extended the skewb both ways this time to yield a true X-shape. Enjoy! :D

Imagine if you could extend a square 1 like that. That would turn into some crazy shapes...
Great build! :D Will you make a video?

"first you make the cross, or an "X" shape" has a whole new meaning to this puzzle! :]

I'm in love the skewb even more. My first is on the way and I know I'll love it!

I was thinking about something like that recently, except it was a block not an x shape. Still nice job!.

Thanks for the comments. I don't remember exactly how long it took, but id estimate only about 4 hours + stickering, seeing as i used molds which made it a lot quicker. I should hopefully have a video up sometime soon.

With a build time of 4 hours I reckon you could make a few more and sell them.

Scott made custom molded mechanisms. He would have to probably have to get a bunch of skewb cores.


Then again he could try molding two identical pieces and put them together to make a make shift core.

Either way, that would be a lot of effort and stress on his part.
