One of Stewart's earlier works, Pyracube is a puzzle I've always wanted in my collection. I figured since I was going to make one, my customers might want one too. So here it is! Stewart has this to say about Pyracube:
Pyracube introduces a large family of puzzles made by joining polyhedral blocks together different ways, in this case by using edge beveled cubes (or to put it another way, truncated rhombic dodecahedrons). Strange as it may seem, they pack snugly and neatly into the cubic box with or without the single block. They will also form these seven other symmetric assemblies.
Each copy of the puzzles includes a diagram of the possible shapes.
Construction is well thought out with this puzzle. The box is shouldered with a floating bottom for expansion, and the pieces are glued and clamped for strength. I tried to break two block apart with my hands and could not. I go to the gym a lot too :)
47 copies made for sale, each signed and dated. This puzzle is shipped assembled.
