COMMENTS: I have always been a huge fan of this design. The simplicity of the concept combined with the amazing result of the implementation leaves me in awe. I wish I could think up stuff like this!! This puzzle is really eight challanges in one. The goal is to assemble each cube inside the walnut frame. Solving the cubes outside of the frame is trivial, but the limitations the frame introduces makes inserting the cube difficult and confusing. The frame movement is limited by four protrusions which restrict the range of two of the available axis. Compounding the difficulty is the fact that it is very easy to lose your orientation once you get started dwn a path. There are two variations available...both are identical except that one of the cubes was made in both bloodwood and red palm. This puzzle is handmade and signed. 22 copies were made, including one sent to the designer as thanks. The fit is perfect at normal humidity.
SIZE: 4.2"
