This is my latest mod. I was unsure about how to do the stickers, so for the time being I put black stickers on some of the faces. Let me know what you think about how to go about doing stickers. Thanks!

Nice and creative! I'm not sure for the stickers either. Perhaps do it half and half, according to the colored edge. Know what I mean?

I know exactly what you mean, and that is what I was thinking about doing. Thanks!

any way to attach the pictures because they wont show up on my computer. they're just little squares with red x's in them.

Clever. Very clever. I don't know how this wasn't made yet. Good job.

Nice job! Are the pieces filled or did you use plastic sheets to cover the holes?

I think that he ment that he was surprised that nobody made one yet, not that he couldn't tell how it was made. As for the stickers, I'm in favor of the 4 color edge stickers.

Read my post more carefully. I'm saying I don't know how it wasn't made yet. Meaning I thought it was a fantastically clever yet simple idea and I'm surprised it wasn't made at an earlier date.

I have a reputation for making simple puzzles, but still ones that haven't been made yet. :wink:

I started filling the pieces with QuikSteel but ran out so I finished with Milliput.

I painted with a spray enamel, which I can't remember the name of. They used to carry it at Walmart but do not anymore for who knows why. Oh well!

I'm debating on how to sticker it, but I'll figure it out tomorrow since it's so late!

Thanks for all the comments! I plan on making one or two more puzzles like this that are simple but will be the first of it's kind. The two I'm planning are a bit harder than this, but they should look awesome!

Thanks again! I'll post pictures when I get the stickering right!

edit:

I like Scott's idea!

This is a mock-up of how it would look (basically):
