|MATERIAL:||Quartersawn Sapele and Wenge Box with Figured Maple Pieces|
|SIZE:||2.7" x 1.8" (6.86 x 4.57cm)|
The Half Lid Box Packing Puzzle seems easy; pack the five pieces flush into the box. This simple task is made difficult by a sliding cover that blocks half of the box's opening. Since the interior is three units wide, the blocking slider necessitates rotational moves, which complicates assembly.
Box construction is sturdy, crafted from Quartersawn Sapele with shouldered edges. The sliding Wenge lid panel is precisely fitted to move easily.

Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.
I love packing puzzles with a restricted opening. Hajime has created an elegant design, and Eric has crafted a wonderful puzzle. This is the type of puzzle to leave on the coffee table.
A very well-designed and beautifully made puzzle - tricky and challenging, but not impossibly difficult. Lots of replay value and a great gift.
Half-lid is another beautifully crafted puzzle with a tricky non-intuitive but readily reached solution; possibly a tad easier than 4-L but just as satisfying; the moveable half lid is a genius twist; tolerances on the puzzle are perfect.
