Tube It In is a classic design by Wil Strijbos. To solve it you have to take the various small rectangular pieces and pack them all inside each other. Wil originally made it with small cut sections of metal pipe! What an original and fun idea, still unique to this day. The puzzle itself is moderately tricky and fun to solve.

If you’re looking for a puzzle that is not only challenging but beautiful at the same time, this is it! With so many different types of wood and the precision that allows each piece to fit together, it becomes more that a puzzle. It’s a piece of art!
With the number of pieces, I thought this would be an overly difficult packing puzzle. But I was mistaken, it's a reasonable and fun challenge, and very satisfying to solve. It comes together in such a compact and beautiful way, with a gorgeous selection of diverse woods. The redesign of this puzzle (from the original of metal) was brilliantly done.
This was my first wooden puzzle. As I'm a big Wil Strijbos fan and have quite a collection of his metal puzzles, this was the obvious choice for me to try out a different material. I'm glad I did. The craftsmanship is excellent and the different woods are just beautiful to look at. Not a difficult puzzle, but a very satisfying solve.
