|Here we have the first design from Cleverwood's
newest puzzle provider, Marcus Allred. This beautiful wooden puzzle is named "The
Each Lunatic is unique, being crafted from solid wood with a
Burl Maple exterior. It is a hidden maze
puzzle. You drop the provided steel ball in one hole and try to get it out of
the other hole in the fewest number of moves.
Here's what Marcus has to say about his design:
"The Maze can be worked from either end, one way is more difficult than the
other. For the more difficult of the two begin inverted and don't lose your mind,
you will need to go back and forth at least once maybe twice to escape this asylum."
|The first thing that draws you to this puzzle is the attractive solid wood
exterior. It has a light and lustrous finish that really brings out the variations in the
wood. It is smooth to the touch. Marcus's woodworking on each maze is very good,
showcasing the beauty of the wood itself. The exact dimensions of each maze are different,
but all of them are over 2 1/2 inches squared.
This is a solid puzzle that
feels good in your hands. Perfect for any fan of fine hardwoods.

A few words about the artist:
"My interest in woodworking began when I was a child as I was helping my
Dad create small masterpieces in our garage for the yearly pinewood derbies. My
interest grew and progressed from there and the "approved" project in high
school woodshop didn't seem to satisfy my desire to create something a bit more atypical.
The freedom I found in the ability to express a bit of my personality through each
new project I completed was and still is awesome.
Each project starts with a simple idea and the Lunatic is based off of an idea
I had over 12 years ago. While doing the typical "guy thing", I was
looking for a project to complete that would properly impress my fiancée. We
resurrected the Lunatic and reformed it into the finished piece you see here. It was
impressive enough to do the trick and she became my wife not long after. (You may
want to consider carefully who you buy this puzzle for!) Now I continue to create
quality pieces of work that will inspire and provoke thought and reflection."
