    Love it, but I would like to know how to invent, create, this type of "puzzle" for myself. Especially Escher's tesselations.

    The Escher Cube is much different from what you've drawn here. Yes, it's got the "Weaving" of the edges that you've attempted here, but each of the edges is also three dimensional.

    The images below is from http://www.thediviningnation.com/4c.htm.

    It shows the three dimensionality of the edges, and the complete weave that you missed on the left hand edge of the front face of the cube.

    yes but this is the first version. that is a variation. either way, it is impossible.

     It's simple enough to draw (for me), but to carve it out of wood?!?! Now that's what I call a masterpiece!!!!

    Unfortunately, the wooden structure has holes in it. It kinda sucks....

    I drew it once, going along with your guide, step-by-step. I drew it once mostly on my own; had to look at step #6 to make sure I did it right. I drew it a third time, by myself. :)

    no you can make one of those out of wood. You just have to have the right angle
