Notched Corner Cube

a puzzle of historical interest


This is a 20 piece puzzle that comes apart with one move with two pieces sliding out.  I decided to make these after seeing the spherical puzzle on page 62 of the book Puzzles Old and New by Jerry Slocum and Jack Botermans.  The designer of the sphere is unknown but it likely over 100 years old. 

The puzzle I make is the same design except it is a cube instead of a sphere.

It is made of Walnut and Padauk and is a 3 inch cube.
