and also to the friendly chipper who pointed me to the dice collecting board, where I also posted the query.
Based on the responses I received, I am going to test with model glue, gorilla glue, and clear epoxy. I'll let you know of the results of my trials, and if I am successful in assembling my project.
I have also had a few people contact me re: bulk dice purchases. I currently have a source for them at $0.75 a pair, but was hoping to get closer to $0.50/pair or so (although I don't know if that is just wishful thinking/ignorance of the market on my part). The 5 star deal site that Jesse suggested sounds like an excellent idea for an oh-so-tacky Christmas Tree garland idea I have, but slightly differing cube sizes probably wouldn't work the best for the brain puzzle project. However, I appreciate the information. It's all useful to me .
Again, thanks to all for the great ideas and suggestions. And if any new revelations or information come to you, I'd be much obliged if you could pass it my way.
