In Brackets is an interlocking cube with a twist! While moderate in difficulty, the solution is so much fun you'll find yourself solving it over and over.
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.
Please read the Caring for Wood Puzzles guide to ensure proper fit and operation. We recommend an occasional polishing with Renaissance Wax to keep wood puzzles in top condition.
Really nice design and perfect balance of difficulty .
As always, the design and execution of build on this piece is flawless. I especially like the look of the joinery on the yellowheart (brackets). The engineering is satisfying and the pieces fit well. However, I only gave it 4 stars because I am not 100% happy with how loose the overall puzzle is once solved. I believe it's just the nature of the design, but I can't find a good way to display this on the shelf without something sliding out of place. I wouldn't want the fit to be tighter, then it would be very difficult to work. Maybe the strategic placement of some tiny magnets would help keep things in place? That would be my suggestion. Otherwise, this is a nice addition to the collection and a unique piece indeed.
The woods and joints used on In Brackets suit my tastes very nicely. Love the contrast and the angles. I'll have trouble doing colors justice in a photo but will try... surprised these can still be had, but nice to see some stock available for newcomers to the site! I'd say difficulty is medium, but getting my head around the possible movements was not intuitive.
