Tim has been doing some very interesting work with regular burr pieces interacting with loose elements inside cages. I wanted to make one of his designs but there were several to choose from and it was a tough choice. I eventually settled on Event Horizon as a good representative of the concept. Four standard burr pieces dance around with a single cube in a box. The box has an unusual opening in the top and bottom, and hidden protrusions inside. The level 184.108.40.206.3 (whew!) solution is very difficult, but the feeling you get when the last piece slides into place is worth the effort. Given the unusual configuration, eye catching splines and precise construction, this one's a looker all the way!
Construction of this puzzle is excellent, with close tolerances and strong joinery. Fit is excellent, precise yet with enough room to accommodate a bit of seasonal wood movement.
