A quick little mind teaser. Fun to make too. No glue or cuts besides the ones you can see.

Ah, I’ve seen these. Well done! I ought to make one….

Mark, nope, the nail is not cut. In the one I saw, the nail was in an oversized hole so you could rattle it back and forth and see it was solid.

I love this puzzle.
I made one as well, using a big 4” nail that can rattle back and forth.
I brought it into work and no one could figure out how it was done.
Even when I told them how, they didn’t believe it.
Well done.

Middle two pieces were cut out and glued back in, the striations on the block help hide that?

I’m glad you’re having fun in your shop. I’m gonna try it one of these days! Thanx Logan!
