I only ever made two of these puzzles for the IPP Design Competition (San Francisco) in 2009. It’s a fun puzzle that can be very confusing to assemble from pieces even if you see the assembled shape.
Several years ago Scott Peterson (at my insistence) made a very nice run of them and later Tom Lensch (at John Rausch’s insistence) made a run, with some featuring Holly, Ebony and Rosewood!
I recently was able to acquire some 1/2” size stock and decided to make a few. This can be considered my first puzzle project in over seven years and over 12 years since I first made any ‘Barb’s Cube’ puzzles!
I suppose you could call these mini or pocket size, although they are not micro like Allan Boardman puzzles. I used a variety of woods in many different patterns, my favourite are the ‘Checkered Cube’ version but the design looks really nice in any combination.
I lacquered and hand buffed them with a coat of ‘Conservators Wax’ to make them pop. This Puzzle was named after my loving wife Barb.
Woods used in this copy are:
This is the last copy I have available of the seven that were made and comes with a signed information sheet listing woods used in this puzzle
