Cluster with Child

PRODUCED: 22 Copies
DESIGNER: George Bell
CRAFTSMAN: Eric Fuller
MATERIAL: Ash, Lacewood
COMMENTS: Octahedron with Child is a four piece puzzle which uses coordinate motion in the solution. Three identical pieces wrap around each other and the fourth key piece locks the assembly together. While not terribly difficult, the design is interesting and of course looks wonderful in fancy woods and a 19 piece RD assembly. I meant to make more of this puzzle but a miscalculation ruined about half the batch, so very few are available.

The construction of this puzzle was done with edge beveled cubes which were glued and individually clamped at each joint, and is quite strong. Due to the nature of interlock and base cubes, this puzzle may be tight in high humidity situations.
