OSM Ball wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand



OSM Ball wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand

osm is the Czech word for 8.  An 8 piece interlocking wooden ball puzzle on a turned wooden stand which will really challenge your dexterity skills.

Adapted from the cube shaped Bar Puzzle designed by Leonid Mochalov (a prolific Russian puzzle designer in his own right) by Jakub Dvorak in 2008, this complex interlocking puzzle is much more difficult than the Egg puzzle and has a unique solution.  Precise positioning of fingers from both hands may be required to take the puzzle apart and then you still have the challenge to reassemble it paying particular attention to colour uniformity.

Each puzzle piece is made from many smaller complex shaped pieces glued together; finding the correct combination that are not glued, to push or pull to take apart, may be quite difficult. 

This puzzle is hand turned in the Pelikan workshop using a selection of both European woods including  maple, walnut, birch, ash, apple, pear, cherry, oak, beech, plum, and acacia as well as some more exotic woods like mahogany, ebony, begging, wenge, walnut, American, padank, rosewood, amaranth, Bubinga, owango, jarah, meranti, and iroko.  Each piece of the puzzle is very precisely made from many smaller complex shaped pieces glued together.  The pieces are then fitted together with very fine tolerances before being put on a lathe and turned; therefore it is possible that they could be affected by very humid environments. To protect each puzzle against changing conditions they are stored and shipped in the original airtight ziplock bag they were put in in the Pelikan factory.

Interestingly, the puzzle was designed first by a Russian, made by a Czech, named by a German (Bernhard Schweitzer), and is now being sold by an Australian;  a truly international effort!

Ball size:  90 diameter.   Stand height: 40 mm    Colour: Random multi-colour.   Solution: A video on assembly and disassembly is supplied on DVD with the puzzle.
