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.
