Designed and first released at IPP in 2009, Surround is closely related to the 3/4/5 cubes designs by Ichiro. In this case, six pieces must be used to surround the solid cube in such a way that is self-supporting. Two solutions using magnets are possible, with another "rule-breaker" solution that does not use magnets and covers the cube completely! The finished shape is pleasingly symmetrical and displays well.

69 copies in made for sale, each signed and dated. 8 copies in Walnut & Maple, 11 copies in Padauk & Tamerindo, 50 copies in Canary & Patagonian Rosewood were made for this release. This puzzle is shipped disassembled.
