Soma Tube  (Designed by Laszlo Molnar) ships unassembled - Packing puzzle

Laszlo is at it again. Designing simple but difficult packing puzzles are a specialty of his. He sent me several variations on this one but I settled on the one that gave me the most trouble solving. You get a set of Soma pieces and a box with a “T” shaped hole in the center. A few position swaps and sliding of pieces and you may have solved it! Three beautiful versions available. Approx. 4.75” x 1.875” x 1.875” (12.1cm x 4.8cm x 4.8cm)

Kingwood box with Maple pieces

$65.00

Cubic Octahedron  (Designed by Christophe Lohe) Ships assembled

I was very surprised when I first saw this design. I was expecting a simple four piece assembly, much like Stewart Coffin’s Octahedral Cluster or 4 Piece Pyramid. It would be relatively easy to take apart and difficult to reassemble because of the confusing shape of the pieces. However, it takes a few moves to take this apart as well. And finding the first move can test your skills as well. I made these a bit larger to get as much gluing surface as possible. I was trying to avoid reinforcing all of the different joints which would increase the costs significantly. Needless to say, rough handling of the pieces should be avoided. Approx. 3.75” x 3.75” x 3.75” (9.5cm x 9.5cm x 9.5cm)

Pif Paf With A Turn  (Designed by Gregory Benedetti) Ships assembled (Moves 5)

This one was just for fun. Four identical pieces requiring a sort of coordinate motion, it’s not very difficult. Getting it back together could prove to be more difficult than taking it apart. Once the solution is known, both disassembly and assembly are easy, but still fun!  Approx. 2.875” x 2.875” x 1.687” (7.3cm x 7.3cm x 4.4cm)

East Indian Rosewood and Yellowheart

$36.00

S.O.B.B. #1  (Designed by Gregory Benedetti) Ships assembled (Moves 3.9.4.2)

Here is this months Board Burr offering. Three different woods that only give a slight hint to the pairing of the pieces, make for a colorful challenge. Although not a very high level, it should still provide an evenings worth of frustration. Approx. 3” x 3” x 3” (7.6cm x 7.6cm x 7.6cm)

Redheart, Yellowheart and Purpleheart

$42.00

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. Removed 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. The boxes on these were made from some Kingwood that I had from an earlier mistake and I was waiting for the opportunity to use! Approx. 2.4” x 2.4” x 1.75” (6.3cm x 6.3cm x 4.5cm)

Box - Acrylic and Kingwood

Pieces - Yellowheart, Katalox, Redheart with 2 steel balls
