Oskar's Matchboxes has always been one of my favorite designs. In terms of originality, appearance and overall appeal, very few puzzles come close. The five dissimilar pieces consist of an outer box and inner tray cleverly glued together. The goal is to assemble the pieces so that every tray is contained inside a box. With only two solutions, this is quite tricky!
Oskar’s Matchboxes is a very time-consuming puzzle to make, with all pieces constructed using the same shoulder joinery that we used to make the Tube It In puzzle. The end result is a puzzle that looks small and fragile but is really quite strong.⠀

A Favorite Reborn!
I've loved this puzzle for quite some time - even made my own from real match boxes.
It's great to have a finely crafted version in really nice wood.
This puzzle is fun and challenging - supposedly there are two assemblies, one of which would allow you to assemble it with matches in the boxes. I'm still looking for that one
I've always liked this puzzle, so when it became available again I ordered.
Puzzle arrived promptly, well packed, in excellent condition. Fit is very good.
The puzzle is built really well. The woods used are beautiful. Every puzzle from here never disappoints.
