This one is called “The Conway Packaging Problem”
This one is even easier than the last one. Thiere are only 3 different pieces.
They are made to whatever unit size you want.
For example 2 inches x 4 inches x 1 inch or 20mm x 40mm x 10mm.
Make the following pieces:
6 each 2×4 x 1 units
6 each 2×3 x 2 units
5 each 1×1 x 1 units
You can see them in the second picture above.
I made these out of Sapele. I haven’t decided on a finish yet or if I will make a box to hold them.
The third picture is the solution. Try it without looking at it first. Not easy at all.
Again I have included a Sketchup drawing which you can find here.
