Tube It In is a classic Assembly Puzzle by Wil Strijbos. The solution involves packing small rectangular pieces inside each other - an original and fun idea that remains unique. Wil's original design in metal used different wall thicknesses...our laborious redesign with uniform thickness is proprietary to Cubicdissection. Tube It In is moderately tricky, with many collectors reporting multiple solves just for the fun of it.

Tube It In's construction is painstaking. Each piece is strengthened with shouldered edge joinery, then beveled on all faces - a tricky task with such small components. This release offers an outer box in either Bubinga or Shedua, with Maple, Zebrawood, Padauk, Canarywood, Honduran Mahogany, Cherry, Purpleheart, Marblewood, Wenge, Peruvian Walnut, Limba, White Oak and Leopardwood internal pieces.

Approximately 90 copies are available. Each puzzle is signed and dated. Tube It In ships assembled.

My Second Tube It In

I bought my first Tube It In puzzle from Cubic Dissection back in 2019 and could not resist buying a second one with different wood varieties to go along with my first one. I absolutely love these puzzles as they are one of my all time favorites!!!

Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

This is a CD classic and a must have for any puzzle collection
