Here is a packing puzzle that will test
your wits. This puzzle is constructed of 25 separate pieces. Each piece is made from 5
glued-together cubes of either dark samena or light helvea - both are hardwoods (hence,
the 125 cube). The pieces are well made, with slightly beveled edges and a great finish.
Along with the puzzle pieces, a wooden rest with three walls is provided.
Depending on your goal, we rate this puzzle as difficult to very difficult. If
you just try to assemble it into the cube shape its difficult. To do the same and
in the checkerboard pattern too, is very difficult.

A mechanical puzzle is a self-contained object, composed
of one or more parts, which involves a problem for one person to solve by manipulation
using logic, reasoning, insight, luck, and/or dexterity. - Jerry Slocum
