Two Burrs in a Basket$99.00
|MATERIAL:||Peruvian Walnut and Carolina Ash|
|COMMENTS:||It's been three years since Logan's excellent Constrained Burr series and his baffling Two Burrs in a Corner, but he wasn't resting on his success. He was plotting, working, scheming...to surpass his previous achievements. And boy did he succeed! Two Burrs in a Basket is a major accomplishment, with a level 2.25 just to get the pieces out of the basket! Here's more in his own words...
In Two Burrs in a Corner, one of the challenges was two create two burrs simultaneously from 12 sticks. In Two Burrs in a Basket, instead of 12 sticks, there are 6 sticks and 6 boards. Again there is a unique way to make two burrs simultaneously, but you don't know in advance whether one burr should be made only of sticks and the other of boards, or whether they should both be mixed stick-board burrs. It turns out they are both mixed burrs (one with 4 sticks and 2 boards, the other with 2 sticks and 4 boards), and moreover, one of them is a record-setting mixed burr.
Construction of this puzzle was painstaking, with bevels everywhere, through joinery on the cage and a nice lap joint for the handle. It was a lot of work to make! Fit is dead-on, the pieces move perfectly among themselves and within the basket in normal humidity.
