Walnut, finished with oil. Got the plans from this book
It is great fun to watch people try to take it apart and reassemble it. Hardly anyone can.

Well done Joel. The walnut is beautiful. I’ve tried this puzzle three times and have yet to come close to this tight a fit (the first version practically falls apart on its own!). Thanks for sharing.

I’ve been making this puzzle for about 25 years. Makes a great gift for the kids teachers, coaches and friends. Hand made makes it special, puzzle makes it interesting and making it work makes you smile!
