    So to tide my urge to build over until funds come in to finish my staff of parthalan i decided to bring to my desk a bit of aperature science brand nonsense.

    it measures about 65mm outside and the space inside is about 40mm in size
    more pics on my fb page :)

    The heart was laser cut, all other parts are scratch made. im planning on moulding the corners to save me having to try to make hundres of little identical corner caps... Enjoy!

    no comments? anyone got an criticism or comments on this? :p I welcome any opinions positive or negative (as long as it constructive :rolleyes)

    i figured that the corners needed re-doing, beveled the edge a tad-load to much so heres the photos of the new corner i made today!

    Man I really need to borrow a copy of Portal :rolleyes. I know the whole "Cake is a Lie" thing but I have no idea its relation to the cube. Regardless it looks great purely from a quality stance...for now.

    thanks :D i suggest getting portals and the second one... both epic!

    Last step before molding is to give it a pass with 1k grit sandpaper :p

    "There was even going to be a party for you. A big party that all your friends were invited to. I even invited your best friend the companion cube. Of course he couldn't come because you murdered him. All your other friends couldn't come either because you don't have any other friends because of how unlikable you are."
