I am about to order a shengshou 5x5, some milliput black, sticker vinyl, and krazy glue. Are those the best materials for a 3x5x5 or should I use others, and what tutorial should I use to make it(I was thinking nathan wilson)

How do you cut stickers for a puzzle? I am attempting a 3x5x5 and I have an exacto knife, scissors, and lots of sticker vinyl. Would it work if I put the vinyl sheet over the white/yellow side and traced the pieces with a knife? after that I could shave a millimeter or so off the stickers so they would fit. Is there another technique?

I got a couple of the YJ Sulongs for free with a large order. Free doesn't always mean bad, however I noticed just how old these things are. I was thinking about using them to experiment with mods, which means they may get destroyed.

Is this one of those cubes that are old/cheap yet are considered classic/collectable? Or can I abuse it knowing I may ruin it.

(I'm terrible at understanding where to post things, so feel free to move it if I'm in the wrong place.)

I wouldn't consider them collectable because they were just one YJ budget puzzle in a sea of tanglongs, yulongs, guanlongs, and aolongs. The aolong being the most famous I think. Some may have been released under moyu when they were a part of YJ.

I would like to create a 3x3 modification, but have little ideas, resources and knowledge. I have been massively inspired by the incredible things people can make and would like to replicate that. Any advice?

Do you have experience with wood/metal-working? Do you have hand tools ready?
