5L Bin

DESIGNER: Pit Khiam Goh
MATERIAL: Walnut, Aluminum
SIZE: 2.75" x 2.75" x 2.75" (0.226 SPH)

5L Bin is an engaging binary sequence puzzle from designer Pit Khiam Goh. Known for his work in creating complex sequential mechanisms, 5L Bin results from Pit folding n-ary concepts into a packing puzzle format. The goal is to remove all five pieces and then pack them back into the box.

5L Bin is an extremely well made puzzle. The walnut box is constructed with rounded edges, resulting in a pleasing tactile sensation. The precision-milled aluminum pieces slide smoothly into place with a satisfying click. Once assembled, the contrasting dark wood and bright metal create a visually compelling combination. 5L Bin just begs to be picked up and solved repeatedly.

5L Bin ships in an assembled 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.

Please read the Caring for Wood Puzzles guide to ensure proper fit and operation. We recommend an occasional polishing with Renaissance Wax to keep wood puzzles in top condition.

Handling Metal Puzzles
All metals tarnish over time. Residual oil and salt from handling speed up the process and may leave undesirable fingerprints. Occasional use of our Metal Puzzle Polishing Kit with a coat of Renaissance Wax will keep your metal puzzles in tip-top shape!

Great material crossover

It can be hard to mix wood and metal, but CAD managed it perfectly with 5L Bin, allowing this super fun nary puzzle to be both sturdy and great looking.

Perfect Marriage

5L Bin is one of Cubic Dissection's first hybrid puzzles. Marrying the highest quality wood craftsmanship with high quality metal work and you get a beautiful hybrid puzzle. A great puzzle but also a great fidget cube as well.

Awesome n-ary box

What a fantastic puzzle. I love n-ary puzzles. This one is not very hard, but the movements are very nice and really addicting. I can’t count the number of times I’ve picked it up to play and fidle with it and solve it. The superb quality and craftsmanship only add to the experience. Highly recommended!
