The name of the maze is the Lunatic…. Sometimes it makes me crazier than the intended recipients.

Tooling, wood, and just overall build issues…. Got to love them.

Ok the title peeked my curiosity. As well as 19 other readers but you really have to tell us more. Some pics maybe. Is it a toy or secret passages in you dungeon :-)

It is a toy, a maze cube about 3 inches made with several different exterior. Making the three way miners has been the biggest issue.

Beautiful wood but a little further explanation might help.

The maze is started with the steel ball placed in either opening. The participant would move the maze in their hands listening, feeling, and imagining where the ball is to direct it out of the maze. The maze can be played from either entrance.

Argh, you beat me to it! (And you came up with a great name for it too!) I have an idea for something very similar, I just haven’t had the time to get to it yet. Yours look great though and should be fun to figure out.

My name is Marcus…. Kinda funny. My earliest version was made in layers in 1996… I made it from a solid block and gave it a name in 2000. In 2007 I changed it again making it with a solid core and went public in a small way. Now I am using figured woods and putting the box together with a three way miter.

I will have to post a pic of an earlier version of the maze late today.

This is the way I was making my maze back in 2000.

This is the latest version of my maze.

It”s certainly unusual and the wood is beautiful. Nice work.
