The Soma cube is an amazing puzzle. Which thanks to Thorleif's SOMA page I have found hundreds of variations of puzzles to solve. I made this page partly to learn how to do things in javascript and partly as a method to generate pretty images of puzzles and solutions because I enjoy making these puzzles and giving them as gifts.
