    My first design attempt - a wooden 3D table-top puzzle I encountered while on vacation.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it... print 12 pieces (they're identical), cut-fold-glue (should be self-explanatory)... then try to figure out how they go together - what the final object looks like, and how to get the pieces to go together to make it!

    And one that actually looks like wood...

    Very interesting. I am not good at these things but my son is. Maybe it's time to have him try something like this. Very cool!

    Well this is interesting... I tried to edit the first post to add a textured version so it actually looks like wood, but the first post disappeared!

    Here's the textured version anyway...

    Since the first post disappeared, what is the goal of this puzzle?

    Print 12 copies of the above piece. cut, fold, and glue each piece (should be fairly self-explanatory). Then try to figure out how they go together to form a 3D object.

    A specific 3D object?

    Part of the fun is figuring it out :) it's a solid, symmetrical shape, not any specific object like an animal or a machine or whatever.

    Pretty interesting puzzle, sort of spatial analysis.
