The (Almost) Impossible Cube
© Copyright Karl Scherer 1999




Description

This beautifully handcrafted puzzle consists of two deceptively simple looking pieces (see image above).
It is made from quality native New Zealand timber (Rimu), which exhibits a beautiful grain.

The (Almost) Impossible Cube comes with two challenges, the Z-Puzzle and the Cube-Puzzle.

Z-Puzzle:
When delivered, the two wooden pieces shown above are assembled in a Z-shape.
Take them apart, turn them a few times in your hand to forget their original positioning,
then try to reassemble the Z shape.
For most people, this is a surprisingly difficult task.

Cube Puzzle:
From the two wooden pieces you have to assemble a cube - that sounds easy.
But you will find that the two parts don't like to be joined to a cube - something is wrong here.
How in the world should that work?
Well, get the puzzle and find out for yourself...

Difficulty Rating :
         Z-Puzzle      : easy
         Cube Puzzle: medium to hard



Material:  Quality native New Zealand wood.
               The wood has been treated with natural wood oil to enhance the nice grain.
Size : Cube 7 x 7 x 7 cm (2 13/16 inch)
