Hi everyone,

I was just about to finish up two other mods I was working on but I put them off to the side to work on this puzzle mod. I did the sketch up the other night and I started on it right away. I hate (actually love :D ) when that happens.

I call this mod the Crazy Triangle. The puzzle was made from a Crazy 2x3x3. The modified pieces were capped with ABS plastic sheet and all of the gaps between the extended pieces were filled with White Apoxie Sculpt. The stickers were machine cut using Oracal and Arlon Graphics Vinyl.

I will post a video in the next day or two. Hope you enjoy.

That is so cool! Your mods are always awesome! After seeing this puzzle, I'm hoping at some point you'll be able to make an extending with plastic sheeting tutorial.

Wow :o
This looks really amazing. And I agree with the previous members, all your mods are of extremely high quality and very original. One thing that I also love is your colour scheme, particularly the black and dark red.

Thank-you everyone for the kind words. They always give me a little boost to finish/start the puzzles I have on my list to build.

I would love to do a tutorial on this but my time is so limited now that I doubt I will have any time to do so in the near future. Which is too bad because I always get better results when I extend with plastic sheet compared to just using cubies.

The video is up on YouTube now for anyone who would like to see it. Thanks again everyone.

Thank-you Dave. Once I can find a decent job outside of the house (my little boy just started preschool) there will be no need to trick me :D .
