The goal of Fano Blocks is to pack seven pairs of identical rectangular pieces flush into the box. These aren't just any pieces, however! They possess unique properties: any two distinct blocks share precisely one edge length in common and any set of two specific edge lengths are held by two identical blocks. The resulting number of edge-matching combinations creates a complicated problem. Finding even one of the eight possible solutions is an accomplishment.
Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.

I love the chaos of dumping out a box of packing puzzle pieces. This one has an unexpected solution that took me quite some time to find. Despite seeing the completed top on my shelf, I still find it difficult to keep the solution in mind. Good re-solve value for me!
The two-toned Sycamore is unique, love it.
Stunning craftsmanship as always!
