This is a beautiful puzzle.
First there's the simplicity of its design. Three simple, no-frills board burr pieces that form the cage that hold a standard set of Soma pieces. That's it! The only twist is that one of the Soma pieces is attached to a cage piece, which ensures that there's only one solution. It's simply a design that was waiting to be discovered.
The puzzle's solution is far from trivial. This solving process is fun as it does not require a pure brute force approach. Careful reasoning will yet you, in several steps, deduce parts of the solution. There will be a few aha moments along the way. The entire puzzling process is a satisfactory one, and will give you your money's worth.
Finally, the puzzle is masterfully crafted. The pieces can move freely, but the puzzle is sturdy and doesn't wiggle. It also looks pretty once assembled.
