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.
Like every single single item made by Cubic Dissection, the build quality of this is utterly fantastic. The feel, movement and even sound of this puzzle is sublime. The design is even more interesting than I expected, with movements in a way I hadn’t expected. I have only just begun to attempt this but I’ll definitely be purchasing the others in the set. I’d highly recommend this to anyone, whether you’re a seasoned puzzler or this is your first purchase.
This is a wonderful combination of SD and packing puzzle. Not much is happening at first and it can leave you quite stumped for a while. But then you have the first aha moment and many more will follow.
Perfect craftsmanship, which at this point I think we all kind of expect from Eric and his team ;-)
If it's available grab it!
One of the very best puzzles!
What a fantastic puzzle. I love n-ary puzzles. This one is not very hard, but the movements are very nice and really addicting. I can’t count the number of times I’ve picked it up to play and fidle with it and solve it. The superb quality and craftsmanship only add to the experience. Highly recommended!
Incredible free the coin puzzle. This is not what I expected in all the right ways. I could just say it exceptional but it doesn’t seem enough. Complex but beautifully balanced so it is a wonderful journey. As in many of Eric’s puzzles you learn, at least I did, to not make assumptions and think. Really it’s all laid out beautifully. Many surprises to get that real dopamine ah-ha! Incredible work all the way through. I’m grateful to have one. There are some left for sale too!
This one has landed in my top 3 favorite SD designs by Eric. What an amazing collaboration. I will definitely purchase any SD that him and Fredrick design in the future!
I felt in love with this maze. Very clever and satisfaying ! The first minutes are really deceptive when you understand that it's impossible for the pin to reach the center.
But what a pleasure to finally understand how this maze works !
Not a big challenge (approximatively 20-40 minutes to solve) but the built's quality and the ingenious solution let you pass high rate minutes !
Probably one of my most favorite puzzles. Once you get the sequence down it’s so fulfilling to solve over and again.
This review will have very minor spoilers on how ResQ feels. It won't spoil anything about the puzzle, but some people may prefer going into ResQ blind and not want my impression of the 2 Boucher puzzles.
I am amazed at how some parts were even possible to manufacture in wood. While it's a difficult SD puzzle with a lot of fun tricks and quirks to find, it's not as long of a puzzle as ResQ was. Jammed Gem took me hours while ResQ took days to solve, but I find the beauty in Jammed Gem to be just stunning.
Jammed Gem is a puzzle that feels like ResQ's exact opposite in some ways. While ResQ had the SD elements being used to enhance and direct the packing elements of the puzzle, Jammed Gem has the packing elements used to direct and enhance the enjoyment of the SD elements of the puzzle.
So while ResQ is a packing puzzle with SD elements, Jammed Gem is a SD puzzle with packing elements. Jammed Gem has a lot more thinking to be done for figuring out the next step compared to ResQ where the solver finds themselves shuffling pieces around and around in circles.
Your craftsmanship never ceases to amaze me! Great puzzle, still working on it and having a great time trying to figure it out, thanks for all your great work!
Love it!! Solved #1 of Fast Maze.!!
Probably one of my most favorite puzzles to take out and solve over and over again! Craftsmanship is spot on! Operation is flawless!
a very precisely made puzzle, great, quality like the wooden puzzles
Very interesting funny and clever little puzzle, that you bring with you in your pocket!
More difficult than expected, it will give you a lot of satisfaction once solved. Highly recommended for true puzzle enthusiasts!
Took me quite some time to open this padlock. What to say tricks on tricks with this one!!
