Barrel PuzzleThe Barrel of Diogenes is a variation of the Barrel kumiki puzzles. Like them, this is an interlocking solid puzzle. The challenge is in putting it together - taking it apart isn’t too difficult. 

This Barrel Puzzle is made of dark Samena hardwood and has 12 pieces. Many pieces are made from one piece of wood. Others are glued together. The puzzle works well and feels nice in your hands.

While the wood grain and color of the pieces don’t match, this puzzle still looks good on display.
