Slideways (2018)

DESIGNER: Ray Stanton
MATERIAL: Walnut, Maple, Sapele
SIZE: 2.625" (6.67 cm)

The artisan series is being discontinued; once these puzzles are gone they will not be remade.

Slideways is one of my favorite puzzles ever. Three simple, identical pieces combine to form a three dimensional symmetrical cross shape. Seems easy, but there's a tricky concept that the solver needs to grasp to make it happen. Once discovered the movement is addicting! This puzzle is shipped unassembled.

This item is sold out and no longer available. Our Marketplace is the best source for discontinued work. We occasionally revisit discontinued designs at our sole discretion and do not accept requests or one-off commissions.

To ensure the proper continued operation and fit of your puzzles, please check out our product care guide. We recommend an occasional polishing with Renaissance Wax to keep wood puzzles in top condition.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about this version (Canarywood) of Slideways. My issue was rather rough (perhaps because of the humidity difference) and didn't have that "Fall Together" action you expected from the metal version. A few coats of "Renaissance Wax" resolved that (inside and out.) Also, there must have been a re-issue of the series since I ended up with the same number (3/21) as Kevin H. Overall a four star experience this time. There will be others.

Another great puzzle!

I love the puzzles from this shop. This ‘sideways’ puzzle is no exception. Great puzzle! I look forward to my next choice from Cubicdissection.

Awesome puzzle - Slideways

This puzzle is one of the best of all times. Simple and elegant design - it slides apart easily and slides together smoothly - that is after you find the correct solution, which is challenging.
Craftmanship is outstanding - Thank you Eric!
