BurrBon is an utterly unique Interlocking Burr Puzzle. What could be better than a six-piece burr? How about a six-piece burr inside another six-piece burr? There are several ways to build the inner and out burrs separately, but only one possible configuration assembles them together. The interaction between inner and outer pieces is what makes this an extraordinarily difficult puzzle.

The construction of BurrBon required just the right balance of tolerances to allow the inner burr to move smoothly. The simplicity of the pieces does not sufficiently reflect how much trial and error went into making it. The end result is sublime, with the dense and heavy internal Morado pieces floating into place inside the beautiful outer Lacewood.

Approximately 85 copies are available. Each puzzle is signed and dated. BurrBon ships partially assembled in an unsolved configuration.

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.

Real challenge

How did I solve this the first time?!
I think I got lucky. Once you've got it you might not want to take it apart again... but then how will you see the beautiful nested morado six piece mini?

Needless to say if I ever get it back together again it may stay that way for a bit!

Not yet solved

Can’t review until I’ve had more time to work with it. Looks great, seems very interesting, but needs time to concentrate on it.
