Edward Hordern Puzzle Exchange - Gold Coast, Australia, August 2007

Difficulty 4/5 on Vinco's scale.
The puzzle is to take the box apart and get the wooden ball out. There are three identical pieces. Beware, if you take it completely apart you will have to get it back together again.
The name of the puzzle Krbana is an old word used in the region of Czech Republic where Vinco lives for an "old box which used to used for some different not-needed things". The word is no longer commonly used and is even unknown to many Czech people. Vinco likes this word because it has the typical sound of the Frenstat region.
