I was having a beer and watching Stevinmarin recite poetry while he was flashing up the making of this puzzle. I copied down the dimensions and today I had some free time on the scroll saw and knocked it out and it is a slick little puzzle. He shows a drawing with dimensions of each of the three pieces.
This one is made from 3/4” cedar

Thanks, Steve!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice! Have you given it to people to try? It’s surprisingly tricky to assemble!

Nice work.
As much as I can be patient, as much I am not when it comes to these.
So if you ever want to see MaFe loosing his mind, just give me one of these in my hands, and results will come fast. Not that I will solve the puzzle, but that I will sit quiet and look angry at this piece of wood that I just put on the table.
Best thoughts,
