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.

Tube It In

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.

This is a beautiful puzzle - petite and intriguing. It’s so perfectly crafted that it’s a joy to pick it up and play with. Intricate and tactile.

I was so happy there was a rerelease for this one. As always with CD puzzles it is beautifully crafted. When taking it apart this beauty distracted me and I lost track of the disassembly process. I got it back together after some careful tinkering. Very rewarding.
