The box is made of mahogany while the puzzle pieces were cut as 12 unique pieces of a 2”x4” piece of walnut (each irregular on 4 sides) that fits into the box in only one way. Made several for people of various ages, adjusting the difficulty accordingly.

Cool box and novel idea for a puzzle, NHd.

Have you tried a version with different dyed pieces for kids… and maybe different alcohol soaked for adults (drink the spirit and hold the pieces in the mouth for “osmosis”)?

Making something out of wood exercises the creators mind, however, a puzzle exercises that of friendly recipients… furthermore you can slip in a few dodgy pieces for someone you don’t like… perhaps a harridan MIL.

So many ideas, so little time

- NHdude


That’s why you should never listen to those wowsers that say ”time is free”. As I get older, my hourly rate increases… far too many people forget to cost time into their projects… that’s why I now gravitate to puzzles, it gets the brainpast the comfort of alcohol for bot creator and user.

That’s one clever and potentially one very frustrating little box of shaped timber
