MATERIAL: Maple, Acrylic, Various Exotic Hardwoods
COMMENTS: I like *some* packing puzzles, and this one made the cut. It's a set of pentominos and a simple box, yet there is only ONE solution to packing them all in. A truly extraordinary achievement! I interpreted this one with a lot of panache, using 12 different woods for the pieces (Canary, Bubinga, Yellowheart, Peruvian Walnut, Paduak, Wenge, Shedue, Mahogany, Ipe, Bocote, Cherry, Ash). The tolerances are very precise, and this puzzle may be a bit tight at first in highly humid situations. Over time compression shrinkage will solve that.

The cage is very strong with a shouldered joint reinforced with acrylic top and bottom and stainless hardware. Each pento piece is beveled all the way around. Tons of attention to detail went into this puzzle...it took a while to make.

39 copies made for sale, each signed and dated. This puzzle is shipped assembled.

SIZE: 1.25" x 3" x 4.5"
