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.
108 copies in made for sale, each signed and dated. 39 copies in Walnut & Maple, 23 copies in Wenge & Yellowheart, 40 copies in Padauk & Tamerindo, 6 copies in Black Limba & Yellowheart were made for this release. This puzzle is shipped disassembled.
Very clever puzzle in the same series as Copy Of Three Cubes, Four Cubes Puzzle, and Five Cubes. Surrounding the sole cube with the other six pieces will do just that. Constructing the solution on a glass coffee table, even if you looked up at it from underneath (Danny Kaye reference withheld) the single cube will be completely surrounded, covered, and unseen.
My review on surround. It’s my first puzzle made by, Eric. First thought. “ kinda small” After playing with it for a while I began to enjoy the size. Craftsmanship is great. The two woods work well with each other. Be safe guys. The worlds falling apart. Happy aloha Friday. Or whatever day you read this on. Rev
Its unfortunate that its sold out....
Because this is one of the most satisfying and gorgeous completed puzzles ive ever seen. There is something just so darn elegant about it. I hope we never stop seeing designs from the brilliant Ichiro, and i hope Eric never stops making them.
