Burr puzzle I made from scrap wood. It turned out to slightly more challenging than I thought. In the end, the wife decided to turn it into a Christmas ornament :).

Thanks. This was my first time using that joint. It took a little sanding to get a snug fit. I 3D printed the same parts and they fit perfectly together.

I really hate puzzles like this, but that said, I’m really impressed that you’re able to make one! I can barely solve them, much less wrap my head around trying to create the different parts of the puzzle!

Yeah, some are a pain to solve. With only 3 pieces, this one only takes the average person about 2 minutes to solve. I dislike the versions that fall apart while you are trying to put solve them…almost takes 2 people.
