Stewart Coffin designed the venerable Half Hour puzzle in 1975, so named because he thought it would take most people about that long to solve it. This variant of Half Hour, STC-29B, is a spin on the classic design. The box features a removable top panel that dovetails into the restricted opening for storage of the solved puzzle. Solving the Half Hour cube will only get you partially there, as the "T" shaped restriction limits the assembly to one solution.
Previously existing as a prototype made by Stewart and sold on our Marketplace a few years ago, we came across this design thought it was interesting, a fun solve, and a great puzzle to make. Construction came out very well with a Figured Maple Box, African teak top, and Lacewood pieces.
50 copies are available for this release, each signed and dated. Half Hour Variant ships in an assembled configuration.

HHV is the most beautiful packing puzzle box I've seen. The slick opening African Teak lid pairs wonderfully with the Figured Maple box and the grain of the lacewood pieces is fascinating. HHV has a few tricky rotations and the pieces fit satisfyingly like a glove. Wow! A must collect puzzle for packing puzzle fans.
The noble puzzle box is so fantastically made that you only have to marvel at it: the magnets, the types of wood, the most precise dimensions with the tiny tolerances that are always necessary, the perfect bevel on the lid of the box. Hardly anything needs to be said about the challenges of an STC design. Biggest thanks to the CD team, Greetings Frank
As always, Cubic Dissection just continue to keep setting the bar when it comes producing tight tolerance and wonderful looking puzzles.
The puzzle is a wonder to hold, and the lid alone is worth having it in the collection.
I can’t wait to see what comes next in each and every update.
