Just finished a very simple wooden puzzle. It was quick and easy to build. Thanks to Junji for his post. I made 2 from some left over Purple Heart but most any wood would work. I have also made from Pine and Maple. The 2 intersecting pieces of wood are locked by the dowel pins. To put the puzzle together you need to push the dowel pins (4 of them) outward to the sides pieces. Then intersect the 2 pieces of wood and shake them. The pins move to lock the intersecting pieces of wood.

Drawing -
I’m not the best at SKetchup but I did my best to add a drawing. Its a jpeg.

To Solve…........

Just give the intersecting pieces of wood a quick spin and just like that you can separate the pieces. Give it a try. It took about 1 hour to build 4 of them. Makes a great stocking stuffer.

I like! What a great way to use up all the small pieces of wood I can’t bring myself to throw out. Only 5 evenings to Christmas!
