Just a quick one. There must be some use for the MDF offcuts from the Drum Sander project I thought.
Old fashioned filament type lightbulb goes on in head. Steveinmarin's Wood Cube Puzzle. I’ve been promising myself I’d try this one ever since I saw his video, so here it is.

Material 3/4” MDF, the furry edges should make it more tricky. Overall size 2.25” cube.

I don’t like puzzles because I can never solve them. If I liked them, that would probable mean I could solve them, but then they wouldn’t be puzzling, would they?
