Pack Six was designed by Eric Fuller back in 2003. This six-piece Packing Puzzle is deceptively tricky...it looks easy. Yet when most try to solve it, they are engaged quite a bit longer than expected. Just when you think you have it assembled that last block is in the wrong place. Piece analysis only gets you so far, making Pack Six an enjoyable challenge for both experienced and newer collectors.
Customer Gaétan Gouge discovered an additional challenge for this puzzle: figure out how to make a cube using five pieces. Extra credit if you lock the cube in a corner of the tray using the remaining piece so that the cube doesn’t slide apart when you tilt the tray.
Pack Six is very well constructed with a precisely crafted Figured Maple tray featuring shouldered joinery and a free-floating Sycamore bottom. The pieces are made from Iroko, Chechen, Shedua, Wenge, Chakte Viga, and Purpleheart.

I enjoy your puzzles
Just an A+ job all around, glad to have a piece of the Artisan series
Such a fun little puzzle and colorful too. Just pack the six pieces in the tray. Pretty and well crafted like everything from CD. It’s not too hard ... apparently ... for most people ...
