Count the total number of end grain squares in each setup. The same 4 pieces are used in all the pictures.
Made from slices of red oak end grain glued together and finished with oil.

Puzzle Source: An old puzzle book I can’t remember. Uses a common illusion technique (I forget the official name) similar to this puzzle but there are many variations.

I also made a video of the build and puzzle using a Nexus 5 phone camera. My first video, let me know what you think and what can be improved.

Solution hint below:

Compare the angles of the two different pieces…
