Had a QJ 4x4x4 laying around, and I've always wanted a 3x4x4, so I bought some material and started building.

Because of the structure of the 4x4x4 centerpieces, I couldn't sand down them enough so I figured that I could make a pillow shape of it, and it turned out great.

I'm really happy with the result. I could have filled the pieces a bit more to get rid of some hollow feel, but I didn't have that mutch filler left so I had to skip that. Anyway, here's some pictures of the build.

Edit: *VIDEO*

It'll look better if all sides are pillowed, but that's a hard job.
Anyway, It's great! :D

Yeah I tought about doing that, but as you said, it would have been a lot harder, and I guess I'm nog patient enough:P

Spending 2 hours on stickers almost killed me;)

Edit: I might do a video later today.
