|MATERIAL:||Quartersawn Bubinga, Quartersawn Paduak|
I am very happy with the results of this, my latest puzzle box. The design originates from a sketch I made in Chicago sometime during IPP23. It combines several ideas I have been wanting to implement in a sliding panel puzzle box. The solution requires 14 moves, but those moves are anything but straightforward and are at times downright devious. I had the pleasure of watching many puzzlers attempt to solve it during the course of IPP29, so I can say that difficulty wise it's a nice 15 minute solve for most puzzlers, with several ah-ha's to spice things up. Fully understanding the interactions between all the panels will likely take quite a bit longer.
34 copies were made for sale, each signed and dated. Internal routes were used for the structural components, resulting in a very strong box which will last a lifetime if properly cared for. Each box was hand finished, waxed and buffed. The quartersawn material was specifically chosen for it's dimensional stability, strength and beauty. Overall I am quite pleased with this box and feel it is some of my better work.
