|Sapele / Cocobolo
When I saw this design (along with "Begonia") I knew immediately I wanted to make it. Blurring the line between a packing puzzle and an interlocking puzzle, the goal is to construct the 3x3 cube inside the box. Tougher than you might imagine since the opening is only 2x2. The solver must figure out the proper piece orientation as well as the order of insertion. Tricky but not insanely difficult with a level 4.1.2 solution, and a lot of fun to solve.
The construction of this puzzle is robust. Internal pieces are beveled on all faces, as is the outside of the box. The box itself has angled splines made from the same cocobolo as the pieces to keep the joints from moving or splitting down the road.
