In my ongoing quest to annoy my family members with dippy stocking stuffers at Christmas I present…
The Half Hour Puzzle. This may look like a SOMA cube puzzle but the Half Hour Puzzle has one solution while the SOMA puzzle has something like 240. I believe this design is credited to Stuart Coffin. The name comes from the average solution time.
27 pieces of cherry glued up into 6 puzzle pieces. One coat of boiled linseed oil, I’ll apply a second after a few days. The easy way to apply the BLO to these 6 pieces is to put them in a little tupperware container, pour in some oil and shake it around. Then blot off with paper towels and let them rest on newspaper.
