This is an advanced version of the puzzle I posted a few weeks ago. I incorporated a few lessons learned from that project and also came up with a way to reduce the required accuracy. The solution is similar but I’ve added in complexity and a little decoy to throw the puzzler off the scent :).

That’s pretty cool. I may have to try and fail at making one of these before I attack and butcher a bunch of wood trying to make an Abe Lincoln Impossible mallet. :)

Thanks. BTW, this one should be much easier than the mallet :)
