When I first saw this puzzle here on LJ, I was instantly hooked on it as well as trying to find out the solution! I was literally spinning in my seat when I finally figured it out!
I made a quick one out of pine to get the feel for it and quickly figured out that unless you get the spacing just right, one can kind of “cheat” at it to solve it – very frustrating when you tell someone it’s a very tricky solution and they jiggle it a little and it falls apart! :-0
So, I brought all the tolerances in tight and made it out of red oak this time – a quick coat of lemon oil and voila! It works perfectly – I have yet to have a “wrong way solve”. :-)
Oh yeah – you will have to read Junji’s post to try to figure out the solution – all credit and thanks go to him! And I BEG of you to NOT post the solution on this page! Keep the secret a secret! THANKS!
