Michael Scheider's original ebay auction description:
"Ever since seeing this Edge Only design I've been wanting to make one. It was definitely more challenging than I thought it would be but after many failed attempts, I am happy to put up for auction today my custom wood fabrication of the Rubiks Cube "Edge Only" puzzle. I don't know how the others are being made but I found that even though the cube has no corners, it still required the corner inner workings to make the puzzle functional. Machined from solid oak, each piece was individually crafted, hand fitted, sanded, stained and varnished. I've also applied a set of Cubesmith high quality vinyl stickers, cut by hand. The puzzle is fully functional and moves pretty good. The fit is reasonable since there are no corners to keep the edges in place. As long as you keep your moves moderate, the parts won't dislodge. I used a pine stain on this one and finished it with three coats of varnish. It's dimensions are the same as the original Rubiks and each piece with the exception of the internal center piece is completely custom made."
Compared to the plastic EOC version I own the wooden version twists also very well. The mechanism is identical. Amazingly even the edge pieces are made from one piece of wood. No glued pieces at all!
