Hi everyone,

So I finally finished this puzzle, a Xenomorphix. This puzzle was originally an Octahedron that was made from a Fisher Cube. After completing the puzzle I realized that it looked pretty much the same as a manufactured QJ Octahedron. Since most of you know that I sell the puzzles I build, I didn't think that anyone would want purchase a hand made one. After talking to Justin (since he is the first one that I know of who made the Xenomorphix) he gave me permission to make and sell one of these puzzles. Thank-you Justin.

The puzzle was capped with Polystyrene plastic and the pieces were filled with Smooth Cast 300 and Apoxie Sculpt. The stickers were machine cut using Oracal and Arlon Vinyl.

I hope to have a video up tomorrow. Hope you enjoy.

Looks great. The third picture looks like it could be an album cover.
