Multiball (2021)

Product is available.
DESIGNER: Eric Fuller
MATERIAL: Quartersawn Walnut and Zebrawood
RELEASE DATE: 3.1.2021
EDITION: 130 Copies Released
SIZE: 3"

MultiBall is a difficult Puzzle Box! Four stainless bearings trapped behind a window are blocking the way - how will you deal with them? Panels slide, pins drop, yet MultiBall remains stubbornly closed. Originally designed with a single solution, a second more laborious methodology was discovered after release. Learning each method is a challenge, so I left the design as-is. Can you find them both?

This batch of MultiBall was constructed with Quartersawn Walnut and Zebrawood, both very stable yet complementary choices. We added cross-grain internal panels to resist movement and notches, allowing the lid to open wider. To compensate for dry shop conditions, we cut the moving panels 0.015" undersize to allow movement in more humid conditions.

Approximately 130 copies are available. Each puzzle is signed and dated. MultiBall ships in an unsolved configuration.

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 Rennaisance Wax to keep wood puzzles in top condition.

Was a fun puzzle

I enjoyed the puzzle a lot.

Multiball and latest

I had opened Multiball and then loaned it to a friend when I read this had a much more elegant solution. I have now got it back and thought about my solution more carefully and then solved it in what I hope is the intended solution. A very clever mechanism!
