This was one of the 2019 entries into the IPP Design Contest from Laszlo Molnar. A really cool idea that seems almost too easy. Until you try to assemble the pieces into a cube and find out that there are other forces working against you! Rare earth magnets imbedded within the pieces work against each other to keep the cube misaligned. Can you find the one solution that stays together? Made from various domestic and exotic hardwoods.
Each of these puzzles has almost $20 worth of magnets in it and it was time consuming inserting the magnets, but these were still a lot of fun to make. Watching the pieces fly around the bench when I was least expecting it was entertaining, and often startling! Made from a variety of domestic and exotic woods.
