Artefacts - Packing Puzzle

RELEASED: 10.18.2016
PRODUCED: 48 Copies
DESIGNER: Frederic Boucher
CRAFTSMAN: Eric Fuller
MATERIAL: Walnut, Baltic Birch, Chechen, Maple, Steel Dowel
COMMENTS: I'd long admired this design by Boucher, and finally got around to tracking him down and asking permission to make it. I'm so glad I did! It's really a great puzzle; even if you don't necessarily like packing puzzles you should give it a try. There are three solutions for packing all the wood pieces plus the metal dowl in. However, once you put the dowel in the hole, there is only one solution and it's very, very tricky.

Construction of this puzzle is outstanding. The tray had to be very precisely made and the location of the hole even more so. Beautiful hardwood splines reinforce the corners on top and bottom, insuring the mitered corners will not split.
