Easily distinguished from mass produced imports, these puzzles set the bar for quality. Eric's work has won international awards, been housed in museums, and is sought after by collectors around the world.
I decided i would call this Burr puzzle Son of a Juno puzzle, instead. Disassembly easy, assembly a real son of a bitch. But magnificent the way they all came together finally for a complete solve. Yet again I am never disappointed with Anything made and purchased by Eric Fuller. Cubicdissection is truly a treasure in it self, blessing us with incredible works of art.
4L (2020 Release)
I was so glad for the re-release, as I snoozed and didn't pick one up from the last time they were available. This is an AMAZING puzzle. You can see everything you think you need to do, but for some reason can't do it, until the glorious 'aha' moment strikes. This has made my top 5 favorite puzzles of all time. Of course, as is expected from Cubic Dissection/Eric, the quality is outstanding.
Great puzzle, well made, and beautiful. Thanks!
While not a puzzle has extremely nice design and very clever.
The quality of the woodwork on this puzzle is astounding. The tolerances are sublime. It may not be the hardest puzzle, but finding the second solution, and being able to reliably repeat them both means more puzzle time for your dollar. And it looks great on the shelf. I got the Padauk, but they all look fantastic.
What a great idea for a packing puzzle! The components feel great in hand - the 'bananas' are heavy, perfectly tactile, and make a great clinking sound inside the monkey. Fun solve, and beautiful machining!
Where did those ball bearings come from!? And where do they go now? The burr itself might not puzzle too many puzzlers, but those ball bearings sure throw a wrench in your plans. Great puzzle, and a very satisfying solve once you get there.
This puzzle, while oozing charm and adorableness, is actually quite tricky, and obviously beautifully made. Took roughly 1.5 hours to disassemble and then reassemble, and I loved every second of it.
I've been waiting for this for quite some time. This is certainly one of those amazing puzzles that matches up to Eric's excellent craftsmanship. A modern classic everyone should try.
This one had me scratching my head for a bit. A really clever solution in the end! A good one to add to your collection for sure!
Elegant. A piece of modern art. Simple moves, but difficult to solve. So visually different from Eric's other pieces--it immediately became my favorite.
Oskar’s Matchboxes received and solved. A great little puzzle! It reminds me a lot of Tube It In just in how snug the fit is. Not a difficult puzzle but extremely satisfying with a lot of replay value.
The puzzle itself is very well made and nice to look at. It's my first Burr and I am super happy that I chose it to be the one to pop my Burr cherry. Disassembling was fun, but the assembly was even more fun. I currently have it waiting disassembled for me to forget as much about it as possible, because I want to assemble it again and feel the satisfaction.
Good puzzles .. Fast Shipping ..
Easy purchase !
Will definitely buy from again :)
Got this as a birthday gift to myself. Was the first expensive puzzle I bought and can say I can see why it is expensive. Even though it took me roughly around 5ish hours to solve over the span of two days. Drawing diagrams and solving it felt great and rewarding.
Have it sitting on an old white marble trophy stand. I recommend cutting some cloth that you would clean glasses with so the brass doesn't directly sit on the marble to prevent scratching. Really looks nice!
I love playing with the small magnetic pieces of this recent series, and this one is easily the prettiest one! The dark wenge surrounding the golden yellowheart cube in a symmetric shape looks really stunning.
Fun puzzle with a satisfying solution. I'm usually not a burr puzzle enthusiast, but found this very enjoyable to play with. As always, quality is excellent and everything fits and moves perfectly. The size is reasonably large to play with and the description didn't lie: I hit several "dead ends" before discovered the rewarding solution.
I still can't believe how long Eric was kidding on me with this design. What an awesome build quality hiding the mechanism for such a long time (2 weeks at least with off and on puzzling). I had such a victory feeling once I found the solution. Just WOW! Loving it!
This one was a must buy as soon as I saw it was a new entry into the sequential discovery genre. The box itself is beautiful and draws the eye on the shelf, and while I am yet to solve it fully, the secrets uncovered so far are unique among a fairly sizeable collection. Top work!
Honestly can not believe there is still a copy left - a must have for fans of TIC's and interlocking puzzles, or anyone who likes a puzzle to make you say, oh wow!
Quality was fantastic. Shipping was fast. A++
fortunately and thanks to thre designer I could make a modell for my TIC´s collection ( more than 145 items now) I have highly to recommand that puzzle designed by William Hu;
I`v got some grey hairs for solving it, because it has a fanstatic tricky rotaion-move which is absolute unusual to all former TIC´s I have; I was so near to the solution but couldn`t find the complete roation move so I `ve got a hint;
great design, thans to William Hu
Fantastic puzzle: solid construction, fun to solve, and looks great on display in my bar area.
Loved this puzzle. It took me a couple of nights to solve it, but it can be logically thought through and the payoff felt great! I was so happy with it that I bought the Titan the day after I solved it. The build quality is excellent as well! I know I'll enjoy handing this puzzle to friends to solve for many years :)
Took about 30 minutes and you have to be careful after you solve it since the other inner mechanisms may fall out and can be hard to locate if they hit the floor. Overall a cool puzzle and looks great on my bar.
One small criticism, my flask doesn’t look anything like the one in the pictures; no grooves or cool colorings, it’s literally just gold brass all the way through so this was a little disappointing and misleading.
Trying to get my hands on a Titan next but looks like it sold out! Hoping a few more get made and I can get a notification when they do!

Once again a fantastic purchasing experience. You gotta love Eric. He’s the captain of his ship.
Been fiddling with this thing for 20 days now and I'm no closer to solving/understanding it than I was when it was still in the back of the UPS truck. This thing is next level! Very little feedback from this damned little ball. Very well made and satisfying to fidget with. If I ever figure it out, it's gonna be one hell of an endorphin rush.
Between the solution, the look, and the construction, this was a great puzzle to add to my collection. It’s one I kept wanting to do again after solving it to confirm I could do it outside of getting lucky. It’s sturdy, has a good weight, and looks great with on the shelf to showcase when not playing around with it.
After taking the recommendations of many established puzzlers, I finally decided to check out the DanLock. This was my first foray into a true sequential discovery puzzle, and it was a wonderful experience. Each time I made progress on this, I was wowed. This had the right amount of difficulty for me, and I look forward to sharing it with others. If you haven't tried this out, you are missing out on a true masterpiece.
Another fantastic puzzle from Mr Felix Ure. This one is slightly easier that his first, much to my relief. It still provided a challenge and was very fun to solve. Great design and craftsmanship.
Coming from a metal puzzle background, this was highly recommended as a good burr puzzle to grab. I was not disappointed. The quality of wood was exceptional. Not only a great display/collectors piece but a fun yet not trivial solution. A must have.
Worthy and enjoyable….
Great customer service for even better puzzles. Not only that but they are affordable compared to other places. The DanLock was well crafted and in amazing condition. A staple puzzle for any collector.
Very nice puzzle. Outstanding craftsmanship. Kept me and my family frustrated for hours. I dare not take it apart..
If you start with Dan Lock, this could potentially be a little a bit of a let down. I would recommend doing this or Fun Lock first before moving up. In that order, this is a great little solve and a good one to share with friends and family.

I now have the 3 cubes, 4 cubes, and 5 cubes puzzles. They're all great! Fun to play with, not too difficult, but not too easy either. Beautiful woods. Now I'm wondering if there is some monster 12-cube design I could make with all three puzzles combined...
An amazing puzzle that many people have enjoyed and tried to solve. Well built with a good aha moment. Good communication from cubicdissection as always. Will definitely be buying more puzzles in the future.
neat, clever, fun, well-made. really enjoy it. thank you
Great puzzle! My favorite of this series.
Where's My Hammer
I had a blast solving this SD puzzle. It has an amazing "aha" moment and is very satisfying. I highly recommend it.
Reticulated cubes is a surprisingly unique and fun puzzle. Beautiful craftsmanship, as usual from CD, and the fit between all the different pieces and woods feels perfect. Fun to fiddle with, a wonderful display or coffee table piece, and a solid intermediate level of difficulty to solve. Go find a copy!
This is 1/3 of my Rex puzzle collection and it is quite a bit more difficult than Rizal (I have yet to solve Mindanao)! The level of SD was quite good for such a small puzzle. It shows a good level of planning and design that went into such tightly compacted mechanics. Overall I really enjoyed it but there is a bit of play/stick in some of the components (as you might expect with acrylic on acrylic) but it didn't really block the solve in any meaningful way!
