Half Lid Box (August 2021)

Product is available.
$75.00
DESIGNER: Hajime Katsumoto
MATERIAL: Quartersawn Sapele and Wenge Box with Figured Maple Pieces
RELEASE DATE: 8.2.2021
EDITION: 56
SIZE: 2.7" x 1.8" (6.86 x 4.57cm)

The Half Lid Box Packing Puzzle seems easy; pack the five pieces flush into the box. This simple task is made difficult by a sliding cover that blocks half of the box's opening. Since the interior is three units wide, the blocking slider necessitates rotational moves, which complicates assembly.

Box construction is sturdy, crafted from Quartersawn Sapele with shouldered edges. The sliding Wenge lid panel is precisely fitted to move easily.

Admission Restricted -- Fun For The Entire Family!

I love packing puzzles with a restricted opening. Hajime has created an elegant design, and Eric has crafted a wonderful puzzle. This is the type of puzzle to leave on the coffee table.

Tricky and fun

A very well-designed and beautifully made puzzle - tricky and challenging, but not impossibly difficult. Lots of replay value and a great gift.

Another ripper

Half-lid is another beautifully crafted puzzle with a tricky non-intuitive but readily reached solution; possibly a tad easier than 4-L but just as satisfying; the moveable half lid is a genius twist; tolerances on the puzzle are perfect.
Thanks Eric!
