I’ve seen pictures and videos of these puzzles, always wanted to make one and figured it would be a great christmas gift. Here is my first go at it! The receiver of the puzzle had some leftover bamboo flooring, so I made sure to use that for the base (unfortunately there was some chip out).

They did! Took about 15 minutes or so. For anyone else wondering, the rope with the two pieces of dowel and the square piece comes completely out of the hole above allowing you to slip the “latch” off and free your prize from the puzzle.
