The ODD Puzzle is a wonderfully challenging packing problem. Three rather large pieces must somehow fit through a wholly inadequate seeming slot to fill the box. The solution is creative and satisfying! This puzzle was the grand prize winner at IPP28.
Construction of this puzzle excellent, with very precise cuts. The splines reinforce the mitered corner ensuring a long lasting joint. Fit is perfect, as it must be for this type of puzzle.

I was able to solve this one in one go. Mostly because I knew what to expect after seeing the pieces (solving stumbling blocks was rather helpfull).
None the less. The craftsmanship is again, par excelence!
Fantastic packing puzzle with very satisfying solution
Overall, a very pleasing puzzle to work on and solve that I am very happy to have in my collection. I will definitely hand this one over to friends and family with confidence that they can solve it if they put their mind to it.
Not a particularly difficult puzzle, but satisfying. As always, fantastic craftsmanship. I'd recommend it.
The earlier "rewiew" was hasty and due to transportation issues. Should of course be 5 stars as usual!
Good aha moment !
You can definitely work this out with minimal trial and error; make full use of everything.
