Havannas-1 (designed by Alfons Eyckmans) Moves  ships assembled

Not your typical Alfons design, with an extremely high level. This design fit nicely with the 4 in Frame seen below and the BurrBox 1 from last month. With the obstructions in the long box, you will have to do a bit of back and forth maneuvering to free all the pieces. Lacquer and wax finish. 3.625” x 2.5” x 1.375” (9.2cm x 6.4cm x 3.6cm)                            

Box Elder and Redheart


4 in Frame (designed by Stéphane Chomine) Moves  ships assembled

So sorry for having the wrong description here. After making Tom Jolly’s BurrBox last month I had to move on to this gem. I really enjoyed making Tom’s and these were fun too. With a higher level than the Burrbox, they should give you a real challenge. If you mistakingly purchased this thinking it was the Havannas-2, please let me know and I will issue you a refund . 2.25” x 2” x 2” (5.7cm x 5.1cm x 5.1cm)                            

Olive Ash box & Kingwood pcs


Koa box & Yellowheart pcs


Cocobolo box & Yellowheart pcs


Black Palm box & Yellowheart pcs


This yellowheart has some black streaks throughout!

C-Cube (designed by Yavuz Demirhan) Moves 10.2.2  ships assembled

Since I had previously made Yavuz’s T-Cube and L-Cube, I had to complete the set and make the C-Cube. Although I think this may be the easiest of the three, I think it will still give you struggle. I was not able to memorize the moves in assembling these, however that may be due to the smaller size of this run. Only 13 were made. All of the edges of the frame have been rounded over to give a nice soft feel in your hands. The Zebrawood I used had an unusually soft grain pattern. Not the high contrast stripes that you normally see. So I thought the softer side would suit this wood well. Oil and wax finish. 2.5” x 2.5” x 2.5” (6.4cm x 6.4cm x 6.4cm)                            

Zebrawood and Holly box & Wenge pcs


Colonel’s Bouquet (designed by George Sicherman)  ships unassembled

Straight from the IPP37 design contest is this very clever puzzle. The four hexacubes can combine in any pair to make a symmetrical shape, each with a unique solution. Then you can take all four pieces and make the block shown below. Again with a unique solution. Wood choices are listed below. 2.25” x 1.625” x 1.125” (5.7cm x 4.1cm x 2.8cm) solved as block                            

Honduran Rosewood







Sonneveld’s 3 Piece 3x3x3 Burr (designed by Dic Sonneveld) Moves 9.2  ships assembled

Another of Dic’s classic designs. This one will not give you the headaches that the Cubed Burr did but I think it will still provide a lot of pleasure as you discover the moves. I think this is another design that belongs on every collectors shelf. Each of these puzzles was individually fitted and sanded and refitted to ensure just the right amount of friction to avoid any unintended moves. Probably not recommended for high humidity situations. 2.5” x 2.5” x 2.5” (6.4cm x 6.4cm x 6.4cm)                            



Y6BB #3 (designed by Yavuz Demirhan) Moves  ships assembled

Last month I had another of Yavuz’s y6BB puzzles available and I had a lot of requests for more. I think this might be one of the easier ones, making it a good introduction to board burrs. Now that is just my opinion, and remember I am looking at the solution throughout the entire production and assembly process. So take that opinion for what it’s worth, maybe nothing. As you may know, I love Board Burrs and I am always going to try and have one in every update. Thanks to my prolific friend Yavuz!  3” x 3” x 3” (7.6cm x 7.6cm x 7.6cm)                            

Granadillo, Canarywood & Yellowheart


Convolution and Involute (designed by Stewart Coffin)  ships assembled

No puzzle collection is complete without a few Stewart Coffin classics. The two of Stewarts are here for nearly the price of one. Each of these is different and I only made a few sets. Each is made from a variety of domestic and exotic hardwoods (at least 10-15 in each)  2” x 2” x 2” (5.1cm x 5.1cm x 5.1cm)
