SOLD OUT Octet in F tray packing puzzle



SOLD OUT Octet in F tray packing puzzle

Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - Washington DC, August 2012
Presented by Rosemary Howbrigg. Designed and made by Steward Coffin.

The goal is to pack the eight pieces into the rhomboid shaped tray provided. 
An original design (#258) by Stewart Coffin.   A good chance to own an original Stewart Coffin.

Stewart provides this hint:
If one resorts to trial and error, Octet in F could be a terror
But four plus four in rhomboid tray, there ought to be a better way
To crack this nut more easily, get in tune with symmetry

For those who've never tried a Stewart Coffin tray puzzle before you'll be in for a great puzzling experience.  None are trivial to solve.  Brian's still working on this puzzles predecessor which has just 5 pieces to fit into the tray and now there's this one with 8.

Size of tray is 110mm x 115mm
The puzzle is presented in raw wood; not sealed or painted.

We have a very small quantity of these puzzles which were only made for the IPP Exchange.
On the back of the tray Stewart has written the puzzle design number, his initials, the year and the number of the puzzle.
