Mechanical Puzzles and Puzzle Boxes
For over a decade Eric Fuller has been pursuing perfection in his Raleigh, North Carolina workshop. Exotic woods milled with unsurpassed attention to detail result in heirloom grade interlocking puzzles, packing puzzles and puzzle boxes.
I really enjoyed the Nope box! For one, the woodwork is simply amazing! It has beautiful wood grains and I love the color contrast of the two woods. The puzzle was about a medium solve, which for me is the way I like it! I’m not a solver that needs to have a difficult, brain twisting puzzle every time I solve! As long as there’s a little challenge, or a new mechanism, Im content. I’m definitely keeping this one to display, sorry, you’ll have to find your own!
This puzzle is stunning. I'll admit I bought it for the aesthetics, but it's also a really fun packing puzzle. The connected top / bottom help create a really unique and fun challenge.
I definitely bought it for its looks but after playing with it I find myyself pondering more how to get those sycamore pieces in than how beautiful it looks on my shelf. A looker with brains to boot!
This is a very cool puzzle. The best part is you really can't get lucky to open it. You will have to figure all the right moves without any mistakes or you will be back where you started. I also bought the hip flask from cubicdissection, if you liked that you will like this. Also great price. Thank you guys!!!
This little box packs a big punch! Not an easy solve but not difficult, just the right amount of challenge. Very satisfying too! I am fascinated with magnets and love the use of them in puzzles (tbh, I sometimes add small magnets to a puzzle to improve stability - but never needed on a CD one). The magnetic forces on this box are perfectly arranged and cleverly used. As soon as I picked it up I knew it was going to be a great process of exploration and discovery before the solution would be found. I was not disappointed. Fit and finish is superb, as always, but in this case I'm doubly impressed with how well the parts are machined and fitted. Another prized addition to my collection, thank you Eric and the CD team!!!
simple yet sophisticated!
The ResQ puzzle is incredibly well made. I had lots of fun solving the maze and finding the solution. And then I had to bring the puzzle back to the starting position. It was well worth it. Definitely a puzzle I'll solve again and again.
This. Puzzle. Drove. Me. Nuts. I don't know why, I just wasn't open minded enough I guess... I struggled with it for about a week for 5-10 minute intervals while working (mostly as a distraction from work here and there). I couldn't get it started so I just kept putting it down. Then I took some time and really focused on it. I still couldn't get it started! I needed a tiny hint to get going (thanks Tom at CD!), but once I got started, I couldn't keep my hands off this crazy alien box. It would take another week of 10-20 minutes of focused sessions with it to make any progress. I needed another little hint from the puzzle community on Discord (thank you) to get past another hurdle but then I solved it and put it back together with some very taxing brain exercise. I have to say I'm disappointed in myself for needing those hints, I should have been more patient and I would have figured it out eventually on my own. However, this is a truly creative piece with immense satisfaction to be enjoyed at several phases of progress. I am giving it a rest for now but can't wait to pick it up again and re-solve it. Then I'll show it off to friends and family so they can appreciate the genius that went into designing and crafting this work of art! This ride was well worth the price of admission. If you are able to get one for yourself, don't hesitate. My only advise is to keep at it and work through the challenges. Even with some hints it was very rewarding for me.
This puzzle is small compared to the long list of objectives to solve for, and beautifully crafted in very high precision. It offers several stages of increasing difficulty, and each stage will give you a reward, and there are some nice Aha! moments as well. I had a lot of fun solving the puzzle with the various aspects, which include sequential discovery, sliding/interlocking blocks, and also applying some advanced techniques in these fields. The openings in the box are not overly big, but still allow you to see inside and deduce possible steps and form theories. No blind guessing is required, an aspect I like a lot about this puzzle.
I ordered Three Cubes Puzzle, it was exactly as I had been expecting and it was delivered very shortly after I made my order. All very professional thank you!
This is a fantastic puzzle. A very clever mechanism and the craftsmanship is out of this world.
I think I opened it 10 times in a row as soon as I found out how it works :-) Truly an amazing puzzle!
A true example of a great puzzle. After many thoughts of WTF, I was able to solve it and wow what a great feeling watching it all come together! I still enjoy taking it apart and putting it back together, still takes a bit even after many times and the craftmanship is amazing! How in the world did you cut those pieces? Love it!
I love your puzzles, but I haven’t had time to even start looking at the details of it yet, or to start to solve it. It is as beautiful and interesting as are all your puzzles, but I can’t comment on the puzzle itself until I get a chance to work seriously with it.
Lot's of puzzling to be found in this one and not for the faint of heart. Eric and the CD crew added a lot off cool steps and elements to what was already a pretty cool little puzzle and came up with a really fun one!
Such an awesome puzzle that it got stolen. I think I may get another. Thanks Eric for the awesome work you do. Keep it up.
