Tube It In is a classic design by Wil Strijbos. To solve it you have to take the various small rectangular pieces and pack them all inside each other. Wil originally made it with small cut sections of metal pipe! What an original and fun idea, still unique to this day. The puzzle itself is moderately tricky and fun to solve.
Construction of this puzzle is painstaking. Each piece is strengthened with shouldered joinery on the edges and then beveled on all faced. This was very tricky indeed with such small pieces. The original metal puzzle had different wall thicknesses; this wooden version with uniform thickness required a near-total redesign and is unique to Cubicdissection.
