This is a famous puzzle designed by Stewart Coffin 40 years ago. Wood copies must be made with great accuracy and have become sought-after collectors items selling for several hundred dollars. This leads to the current state of affairs where many people have never even seen this excellent puzzle. I had never seen one, so I exported the pieces from BurrTools and printed out a copy. Now anyone can order an inexpensive copy of this puzzle. Meanwhile serious collectors I am sure will prefer the wood versions.


Six pieces, all different, assemble into a cube with side 32mm or about 1.25 inches. The markup on this item is only 22 cents. I dyed my version in three colors for a multi-hue look where the same color doesn't touch in the final cube. You may notice, though, that this makes it (slightly) easier to solve the puzzle.


Here is a link to the model page. I plan also to make a smaller version which will be about $15.
