The (Almost) Impossible Cube
© Copyright Karl Scherer 1999


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.

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.
