    I saw the alleged "cube" immediately, but it's not geometrically accurate. The front left side is not parallel to any of the other three vertical sides; it is angled, therefore it's not really a cube at all. I assume the designer did it intentionally to make it appear less cubical and more like a diamond, unless they are simply bad at drawing shapes.

    I challenge you to do better with this equipment on similar surface:

    Hmm... *awkward silence*

    I didn't realize that you designed this yourself on a non-flat surface or I would have been a little more tactful. I figured it was an image that you simply found online. Guess I should've read below the spolier. I have a bad habit of hyperfocusing on something and inadvertently ignoring other details.

    My apologies. Carry on.

    At first all I could see was the face of our almighty lord Satan.
    That was scary, so I shifted my focus to the outline which is a hexagon, hexagons r nice..
    Then a part of me became suspicious... but having learned not to dwell on such lest it develop into paranoia, I quickly moved on to reading the rest of the thread where I discovered that I was supposed to have visualized the lines as a 3d shape. So I returned to the picture, batted away the glaring presence of lucifer, and indeed
    saw the cube.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one picky enough to think "it's a cube with a crooked line!"

    And I have carved straight lines on curved surfaces before precisely, but I cheated and used the chalk line from a plumb

    it's a slightly lopsided cube with extra lines for show. but thanks for making me try for a good 30 seconds to see something less-obvious than that, lol.

    fwiw, I think the lopsidedness makes it a MUCH more interesting design than a perfect cube would have been.
