A co-worker dropped off a small (key chain version) of this puzzle on my desk. I looked at it and thought with only 7 pieces, this should be a breeze. However, I soon found the puzzle very challenging due to the number of potential wrong solutions and the required order of operation during assembly. Anyway, his version was pretty fragile due to the size, so I thought I would scale it up. My version (3" cubed) was made from a scrap 2x4 and a 3/16" diameter dowel.

That puzzle must be popular, as I've seen a young lad on a recent airplane trip (trying) to work out the solution, but his puzzle was in a lighter pine finish. Thanks for sharing, & be safe.
