Finished companion cube

 Alright, so here is the final cube. the dimensions are 24.5" x 24.5" x 24.5". it weighs about 85 lbs, and is made from a total of two 8'x4' sheets of .75" MDF. the lights are actually electroluminescent wire.

the story behind this is that i promised i would make the girl of my dreams somehting amazing, and well... this is what i came up with. we are both huge portal fans. so she got a companion cube, a portal themed mix cd with glados telling her how awesome she is, and cake!

Ok, so this is the second post about the companion cube build. the first post was loading slowly due to how many embedded videos were on it... so i split it up for readability and load speed.
