Hello everyone,
I am a new member and I am very excited to be here. I have been watching the forum for about a year now and I hope that I can contribute to the community as best I can. I guess that I will start off by showing some of my mods that I have done over the past year. I won't post them all since I do not want to take up too much space. Please feel free to leave comments and/or suggestions and I am really happy to get some feed back from the members. The first puzzle is my first mod (not including extended puzzles) and then they go in order from there. I will only be posting the first 5 I have done and I will add more when time is free. :D

Nice work. I really like the Dragon's Teardrop. I've not seen a mod like that before.

Very nice mods!

I particularly like the master cuboctohedron, it's very clean, beautiful puzzle!

I can't wait to see more of your puzzles! :D

Thanks for the comments everyone. It took me while to become a member since I had trouble contacting a moderator. But once the method of becoming a member was added to the forum and with the help of a member (I won't add his name since I didn't ask his permission to put it here). I will be adding more of my puzzles that I have completed soon.

Nice to see that you were succesful in acquiring a twisty puzzles account. I know I have commented on your mods on YouTube, I would like to say again that they look fantastic. I especially admire your Fisher Cube, which I have attempted (and failed :( ) to make several times.

Very nice mods! :)

It seems there has been an influx of really talented builders recently! Can't wait for your next mods to be revealed!

Any chance we could find out what they are?

Great puzzles! How long has it taken you to acquire so many builds? I ask because my build list keeps getting longer and longer and my builds can never keep up! It's great that you have so many, good job! I wish I had more time to make mods, it could be a full-time job for me.

Really cool.
The corners of the HalfTruncated4x4x4 are shaved down but they are still there, right?

I have sold about half of them. My family is going to be moving to to Victoria,B.C in May so any puzzles I sell are going towards moving expenses. And maybe one puzzle treat for myself :)

I love sharing but I have a few ideas for my youtube videos that I want to try out on my next few builds. My next one should be done on Monday or Tuesday so it isn't too much longer until you see what I mean :wink:

It has taken me about 5-6 months to build the ones that you see here. It has taken me awhile to get on the forum so I have be waiting to show them for a little while.

Yes the corners are still there. It is actually a 3x3x3 Extended Half-Truncated cube (KPG-John's design) the puzzle is extended on one side. On the extended corner there are three cubies attached to it to make it look like a 4x4x4 Extended.

Thanks everyone for the questions and comments.
