I was going to ask for some ideas from you guys on what to do with small scrap pieces of wood. I happened to see an advertisement for a puzzle and thought that was the type of project I was looking for. It is not my puzzle design, but I made some changes to the original to make it more my own.

Without plans to go by I was able to determine the relationships between the pieces to make mine. This was so much fun to make, and my wife and 15 year old son couldn’t wait to try it. As a matter of fact my son brought it to school and he and his friends gave it a shot during lunch. He came home and told me his friends think it is unsolvable. I told him it can be solved, but it’s harder than it looks. I can’t wait to make another one.
