I ran into it when I was desperately looking for an idea for my sons birthday, something I could whip out in an evening. So I searched for “puzzle” on lumberjocks.
So in reverse this is how it went:
1. The finished puzzle. I can’t believe I was able to put it all back together myself. As KnotCurser explained, opposite faces need to add up to seven. There are no extra dots inside the puzzle.
2. I used a Danish Oil (Mads, this must be the best, right?) as a finish. Quick and easy.
3. I used my bench hook for planing to plane down the plugs.
4. Hammer the plugs into the holes with a bit of glue.
5. The blocks are drilled and the pugs are ready.
6. I used the drill press to drill the holes for the plugs. It drill nice and straight and I am able to set the stop for depth.
7. I cut the blocks from some left over White Oak wooden flooring.
8. The plugs were made from Walnut. These were scrap pieces I got from my floor installer. Nice guy!
9. The plugs were not completely drilled through. On the table saw I just cut halfway up through the wood and the plugs come rolling out.
Thanks for checking it out and please don’t leave without a comment.
