    I built a nano one. It works just the same. When it was finished, it was 4x4 on the top

    I built a mini one a couple years ago! instead of 2x8 sticks, I did 1x4 sticks.

    Did it stay together? I imagine with only one connection point for the parts that it'd be pretty difficult to handle the puzzle.
