Another "ball in a cube" or... simple overlapping cube but with a ball inside.
Inspired from Tony Fisher's ball in a cube:

Is the inner ball bandaged?
I think it has to.

If the inner sphere is bandages I sould've presented mine a long time ago, but I'm pretty sure it isn't bandaged! I really like it!

I'm guessing this is bandaged like a normal 2x2x2 with the core attached to one corner. If not it appears the slice layer would be very hard to turn by itself. It looks GREAT!! Nice pics! You should consider selling these.

I wish Mefferts would consider picking this up and Tony's Ball in a Cube puzzle. You'd then have a bandaged 3x3x3 inside a 2x2x2 and a bandaged 5x5x5 inside a 4x4x4. Assuming I'm correct about how this one works and I think they'd make a GREAT set.

How long till we see the bandaged 7x7x7 inside a 6x6x6 Ball in a Cube puzzle?

It's not bandaged. It works like a normal 3x3.
In fact it is made of one 3x3 mini QJ and one 2x2 Eastsheen(from ES I used only the corners). :D

lol @ needing to turn a face to see the edges hidden below the corners.

Looks very nice.
