Hey guys,

So I just started to learn to solve the 3x3x3 last week, and got so addicted...
I already bought like 6 cubes just to tested out which one I like best.
So far I like the Dayan Guhong best, and decided to sacrifice my Zhanchi for my art project.
So I wanted to create a "steam punk" version of the cube.
It took me around 5-6 hours total, and I'm finally finished today, just wanted to share the joy~~~
Check it out and let me know what you guys think!^^

Thanks~~~

Great work! Is it solvable? Or just a display piece?

Thanks all for the good comments! I'm so grateful^^

It is solvable. I tried couple times already.
But it's hard for me because I don't remember which color belongs to which side. lol
It is definitely not a speedcube tho :p...

How is it not a speedcube? Isn't it a Zhanchi?

I'm guessing the mods probably messed with it's turning ability.
Yeah, I used a Zhanchi because I wanted to be a smoothly cube.
It still turns smoothly, but since I had one of the clock hands sticking out, it kind of blocks the way.
But the clock hand is movable, so I'll just have to move it away a bit so it won't block.
It is more of a novelty cube I guess ^^ Just to look at, and play a little.. not for speed solving.. lol

Wow. That looks amazing, I'd pay for that to be a display piece. Good Look on your grading and be sure to inform us :)

Your work is quite a piece of art I'd say. Looks amazing, but I have a question that might seems stupid for some of you so yeah here it comes :

Could someone please explain me what "steam punk" means ?
