Cube Packing Puzzles   (Designed by Klaas Jan Damstra) ships unassembled - Packing puzzle

Klaas Jan sent me the followup designs to last months “Dozen in a Cube”. That puzzle sold out quickly so I made several more copies to go along with the new additions. These three packing puzzles are rather simple, a box with a few obstructions and 12 identical pieces! Seems simple right? Not so much! - Finished with Oil and wax.

Approx. 2.75” x 2.75” x 2.375” (7cm x 7cm x 6cm) Note: If you purchased a copy of “Dozen in a Cube” last update, you will get a refund of the price difference applied to the purchase of the new designs.

Quadripole   (Designed by Stéphane Chomine) ships assembled - Moves

I had this piece of Massur Birch and really wanted a puzzle with a box to show it off. The pieces came from a scrap piece of Pink Ivory that I have been searching for a good use for. This design is the type that really appeals to me. A simple box with no obstructions, but 22 moves to remove that first piece? One of his earlier designs (2012), it’s simplicity-with-a-challenge, is one of the reasons I often look through older designs. Approx 3.0” x 3.0” x 1.5” (7.6cm x 7.6cm x 3.8cm) Finished with lacquer and wax. The difference in the prices is due to the high cost of the Massur birch.

Chen’s 6 Board Burrs   (Designed by Chi-Ren Chen) ships unassembled

Moves: #1 -,  #2 - with a required rotation and another rotational shortcut possible,  #3 -

I started out just making one of these Burrs, but after looking over the designs for the other two I decided to make all three available in one set of 11 pieces. After all, I like to have at least one board burr in my updates. An enclosed sheet shows which pieces are required for each burr, however, it is sealed in an envelope in case you really want to test yourself!. Approx 3.0” x 3.0” x 3.0” (7.6cm x 7.6cm x 7.6cm) Finished with oil and wax.

Colonel’s Forest (Designed by George Sicherman) ships unassembled

George sent me this design a while ago and said it was almost a repeat of the Colonel’s Bouquet. So I filed it to look at later. Once I did look it over, I found it to be a very nice puzzle! The cube was relatively easy to solve but two of the symmetric pairs were extremely difficult for me. I spent many evenings fussing with this one and I really liked it. I only made a few copies but will certainly make more if it sells out. I will add a backorder button when it does, as it is fairly easy to make. Approx 1.625” x 1.625” x 1.625” as cube (cm x 4.1cm x 4.1cm x 4.1cm) Finished with oil and wax.

Wood species vary, each piece is a different wood


Bergwind  (Designed by Jos Bergmans) ships assembled

Moves: 8.4

No rotations in this one but I liked one aspect of this cube which I can’t really say anything about without giving a hint. It is a rather easy cube to disassemble and only a bit more difficult to reassemble. If you like a real challenge this may not be for you. I just thought that one part of the process was interesting, nothing more. Approx 2.25” x 2.25” x 2.25” as cube (cm x 5.7cm x 5.7cm x 5.7cm) Finished with oil and wax.

Maple, Nargusta, Granadillo and European Beech


Perfect 11  (Designed by Klaas Jan Damstra) ships unassembled

This was a last minute addition to this update. This puzzle comes with several shapes that must be made from the 11 tiled pieces. Twelve patterns are shown on the supplied sheet for you to struggle with, I know I did! Finished with lacquer and wax.

A three dimensional variation of this puzzle with come in my next update.
