Finally, I finished my first real project!

It is a puzzle composed of 27 cubes of oak and beech.
They are linked together by a sandow which crosses them through and through.
The oak cubes were tinted with walnut stain.
Then, they were varnished with spray lacqueer.

It was made for a Christmas gift.

The last 2 photos show how the elastic is fixed in the extremities because many people have asked me how it’s held :)

Those wooden puzzle games are pretty challenging for adaults too.

Well done! Does the third photo show the required way the 27 pieces must be arranged? How did you drill/connect the parts where the connections are on adjacent faces?

Sorry, I had not seen your comment yet

Yes, the third photo show the final arrangement.
For connections on the adjacent faces, drilling is done at 45 ° center to center with the help of a jig :
