|BDSM with interesting box to pack|
I am not sure why the puzzle was called BDSM - I am not really into that scene despite all the Whack! Ouch!'s that I receive but maybe it's because you need to be masochistic to try it?
Ipe and Canarywood
When I received the BDSM I quickly created a cube and thought to myself that this is going to be less difficult than the others. After all there are 2 very large holes in the box to pass the pieces through and forming the cube really hadn't taken me very long:
|BDSM came with a lovely stand - how hard can it be?|
Finding the solution took me 3 or 4 hours over a period of 3 evenings. I did earn a Whack! Ouch! when I yelled in triumph but it was worth it! When packed into the box the puzzle looks tremendous:
|So gorgeous - it lives in the living room!|
You may ask what happened to my non-matching L-I-Vator II? Well the editor in chief of the on-line Metagrobologist magazine, Dave Holt, suffered his 22nd wedding anniversary last week and so as a gift for that as well as all the work he puts in with the magazine I sent him the L-I-Vator II. As a teacher he often uses packing puzzles to help teach his class thinking skills and what better puzzle to have than one of Laszlo's?
At least I can now show off a gratuitous picture of the whole set in one picture and all constructed with the same woods:
