Five is the magic number! This "Turning Interlocking Cube" has a level five solution, with five rotations and five different wood types. Designed by Andrew Crowell, these fascinating TIC's take it to the next level. Instead of straightforward linear moves, these designs require rotations during the solution process. Construction is outstanding, with shouldered joinery where side grain gluing is not possible, and detailed bevels which flow around the shouldered joints for a uniform appearance.

Just the right level of difficulty for me and it looks stunning on the shelf!
Andrew Crowell has taken the puzzle world by storm with his innovative TIC designs (Turning Interlocking Cube).
They feature some amazing, counter-intuitive rotational moves.
PenTIC is no exception - it's quite amazing and really fun! CD ships it unassembled for an extra challenge (I got one from Andrew that came assembled and that was pretty hard).
You can't go wrong with Crowell or Cubic Dissection - these are top shelf puzzles
Solved Pen TIC! It helped that I could tell where the pieces needed to go, and the order was easy. Getting them in was amazing! Very fun! Thanks.
