COMMENTS: I've seen several designs lately with burr puzzles conspiring to look like other objects...a sword, an elephant...some weirdo even made one that looked like a chicken! But in my mind, none is as apropos as a padlock, so I jumped on the chance to make the Padlock Burr when it came around. Six mostly standard looking pieces interlock within the lock base for a unique and quite tricky level 24.2.8 solution. Lots of fun, and it looks cool too. I also came up with an antire new joint to make the padlock base out of twelve solid pieces instead of gluing up a bunch of sticks. It was tricky but totally worth it (this is how I have my fun these days).

Construction of this puzzle is absolutely kickass. Fit is dead-on. You should buy one.
