These wooden put together puzzles are made by Tom Longtin. Laser cut to exactly fit in place. These wooden puzzles are more a work of art then they are a puzzle. Still challenging to put together but rewarding to see the final product.
The puzzles are the perfect size for a bookshelf or desk accessory. They are also light-weight, and make great mobiles by tying a loop of string around them.
The 100% recycled material is attractive on its own, however, the sculptures can be painted -- either acrylic or oil-based paint works well. The sculptures may also be gently disassembled by inserting a small, narrow blade (like a pen-knife) between the interlocking tabs, and can be assembled and disassembled over and over.
Tom Longtin is a brilliant graphic artist, computer programmer, and mathematical sculptor.

4 out of 5 stars
I am hoping that my review will give a unique perspective on this puzzle as I am blind but still love puzzles. Really is more of a geometric sculpture than a proper puzzle, though the finished produce is quite beautiful to hold, and the instructions for assembly are easy to follow even if you can't see the diagrams.
