Take a standard 3x3x3. Glue all of the pieces together then fill the cracks with milliput. Sand when hardened and paint over the white sith black acrylic paint (unless you used black milliput). Sticker it and you're done!

Here's another totally different idea. Check your local games store for black dice with painted numbers on them (as opposed to indented pips). Sticker over the numbers.

you can take a block of wood and paint it then sticker it. another thought is to take a corner of a 4x4x4 and cut the connector off and use that block. hope these thought will help

Hi Arnoud,
Did you mean the identical piece from the 1x1x2, 1x1x3, 1x2x3, 2x2x2, 3x3x3, 4x4x4, 5x5x5, 6x6x6 and N x M x L ?

Then auction it on Ebay, and see the price go high in three digits!

NOW thats a project, i am anxious to see, could you please post pics of this cube, in it`s solved state,
mixed-up and with prety patterns, should be nice.
I wonder why Master puzzle builder`s like Tony Fisher,
Anthony Greenhill, and the likes haven`t made one....

You could make a 1x1x1 tartan cube, a 1x1x1 shepperd cube, and any other sticker variation.

Jaap`s next update may well give you all the posibilities
and an easy solution.

And don`t forget to send in your 10 fastest times to
SpeedCubing.com.

At next years competition this will be a close one.
The one who pick up the cube then put its back down the fastest, will have him/herself`s name in the Guiness book of records.

Hey make 2,
Read them and weep !

P.S. If I we`re you, I would patent the mecanism.
Maybe one day they will sell millions of these wee cubes, and you wouldn`t want chinese clones cutting into your profits....

May be the best person to answer this question is Erick Anderson, I found a beautiful 1x1x1 on the top of his puzzle skyscraper.

Actually, there's plenty of mini 1x1x1s to be had in the Rubik's Race game.

I "built" myself a 1x1x1 a while ago....the procedure was simple: take a 3x3x3 corner, cut off the mechanism with a dremel or hacksaw, put a small chunk of milliput on it, let it dry, sand it smooth, paint it, and sticker it. I'd be happy to make some for anyone who wants one....for a small fee......heh heh heh. Seriously, if you want one, and want to contribute a small amount of, let's call it, "finacial support," drop me a line and I'll make one for you.
