Box With Two Balls  (Designed by Christoph Lohe) ships assembled - Moves  19.15

Another of Chris’s designs that I loved was this beauty. I loved the idea of the three captive pieces. The goal is simple. Remove the two steel balls from the box. The wood pieces inside the box do not come out. The acrylic sides help you to see what is going on and I used three contrasting woods for the pieces in the box to help distinguish them from one another. Approx. 2.5” x 2.5” x 1.75” (6.4cm x 6.4cm x 4.5cm)

Box - Acrylic and Bolivian Rosewood

Pieces - Yellowheart, Wenge, Redheart with 2 steel balls


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)

Dozen in a Cube

Another Dozen in a Cube

Last Dozen in a Cube

Box - Paela/Wenge

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.

Canarywood with canarywood splines



Wood’s Hole   (Designed by George Sicherman, a variation on Trevor Wood’s Holey Squares Cube) ships unassembled

George set out to find a variation of Holey Squares Cube that had only one solution, and Wood’s Hole is the result. I don’t think this is terribly difficult but I felt it would still provide a challenge for many. I also chose to break my own rules about using too many figured woods in one puzzle. These are made from many figured woods and each is made from six of the following woods, Lacewood, Olivewood, Canarywood, Marblewood, Zebrawood, East Indian Rosewood, Koa or Bocote.  Approx 2.625” x 2.625” x 2.625” (6.7cm x 6.7cm x 6.7cm) Finished with oil and wax.
