Missing Notch

DESIGNER: Stewart Coffin
MATERIAL: Purpleheart, Canarywood, Bloodwood, Maple
RELEASE DATE: 8.6.2019
EDITION: 57 Copies Released
SIZE: 3"

Missing Notch is one of Stewart Coffins more difficult assembly puzzles. The six pieces are nearly identical, with notched out centers and two angled notches on the outside. One piece is missing an angled notch, which obviates the obvious coordinate motion assembly. Can you figure out the alternate methodology?

This puzzle came out very nicely, with a precise fit and a solid maple cube with magnets on each face to keep the inherently instable assembly together once solved.
