# How to make a siemese rubiks cube

I will be showing you how to make a simple rubiks cube mod. What you will need is 2 rubiks cubes any type, super glue, butter knife, a little time, a little effort. If you can handle this keep reading.

## Step 1: Preparing the cubes

Pick one cube and one row I always seem to pick one of the Green rows and remove one row. As shown in all the pictures.This is where you use the butter knife.

=_= that's not the proper way to make a siamese cube... The entire middle won't even turn... sigh.... U're supposed to take out the three pieces on one of the edges on one cube, take the same three pieces out of the other cube, chop up that little piece that sticks out on each little cubie, and glue it on to the cubies that hasn't been cut yet. Basically, u'r supposed to make a normal rubik's cube, with the three pieces being a hinge to BOTH the cubes at the same time. -___- since I'm soo bad at explaining, here's the PROPER way to make a siamese cube. http://www.speedcubing.com/ it's under "puzzle building"

I think they took it off the site. If you guys want, I can draw up a diagram to show you how to make it. I might also have my old siamese cube to take a picture of.

That would be great, actually.

This is just another challenge, yes you can only move certain sides but that in itself poses as a challenge, you must find new ways to solve the 'cube' you cant just solve it as two cubes you must come up with new techniques and therefore it's just a new and different challenge! I realize there are some parts that are stuck and can't move but that is one of the things that makes it a whole new challenge to solve this if you get tired of solving a normal 3x3 rubiks cube! And as with bad english or not proper English, I'm way more of a math person so give me a break my goodness this is a Internet site not a college English paper! :)
That's odd looking..

I love how whenever a decent looking girl makes an instructable, no one leaves her alone. Also apart from a cool looking double cube, I don't really see the point in this.

If you joined just one corner peice, you'd be able to mix and solve both - no?

yes, but only if you put them together when they are already solved.

yeah, it looks like the cube that you didn't remove the row, you can sramble most of the cube, but the cube with the removed row can only be scrambled on the outside.

i take that back, you couldn't turn in all direction, but it defiantly makes cool art

Pretty cool, i guess this makes the cubes unplayable?
CommonSparta (author)  KentsOkay6 years ago
It is a new challenge if you already know how to solve the cube... Because of the fewer slices you can move the harder it is to solve.

I don't think it will be totally playable, but I'm guessing that a couple of "slices" will be usable on each cube, maybe in two planes.

Nice guide. It could however, use photos of it scrambled.
