This is a really fun puzzle to spring on people. I’ve noticed that it is easy to take apart, but hard to put together. So I’ve been showing people the completed shape, then taking it apart without them watching. Then I stand back and watch the hilarity ensue as they wrack their brains for hours trying to put it together. If you would like to build one, here are detailed plans that Timothy Sluder drew up. Enjoy!

Steve – thanks for another chuckle fused with woodworking information.

You really have a creative sense when it comes to editing together a video. Seriously.

Thanks again;)

I recall a video called “Woodworking in Iambic Pantameter” (SP?). Is that one still available?

ok, that was too high a production value. Your such a sell out Steve, I mean really,wearing a suit in a video? You’re now a video host conformist! Ah who am I kidding… It was Great! Brilliant even! (goes back to termiting)

Steve, I sent you an email earlier on this but I wanted to thank you for including Jacey on the show here too. He was totally stoked when you mentioned me and him. He especially loved the Cat in the Hat inspired poem. He’s been into Dr. Seuss lately too so that was quite a bonus. Thank you again for your awesome show.
