Why Brass Monkey? Even if you understand that brass monkey is a colloquial expression used by some English speakers you might still wonder why this…
Insoma diagonal burr
Craftsman Range puzzle made in June 2003. 120 made. All sold.
Original Price: AU$120.00 (AU$109.09 ex Australian Taxes)
We’ve now given the original version of the Insoma a facelift and pointed it differently to end up with this Rhombic Dodecahedron shape. The pieces were originally cut in 2003, so the wood will be very well seasoned now to make a very stable puzzle. The puzzle was last in stock in 2007 so its taken us a while to get back to finishing them but Brian is very happy with the results of this batch.
Two of the most popular puzzles ever made and sold in the world have been used to make this unique puzzle. The puzzle is to assemble both the Soma Cube and the six piece diagonal burr at the same time.
To do this you will need to find just one of the 240 different assemblies of the Soma Cube. Why? In this puzzle the Soma Cube has a unique solution. One piece of Soma Cube is attached to one of each of the pieces of the diagonal burr. When you assemble the burr you will need to assemble the Soma Cube inside it at the same time. Don’t forget you also need to fit the loose seventh piece of the Soma Cube in as well…..
The concept of putting the two puzzles together came to Brian after seeing a puzzle by Phillipe Dubois made with a single cube loose inside it.
The puzzle was available in a selection of woods. 1. Queensland Blackbean with Queensland Silver Ash soma cube inside 2. Western Australian Jarrah with Queensland Silver Ash soma cube inside 3. Rose Alder with Queensland Silver Ash soma cube inside 4. Queensland Silver Ash with Queensland Blackbean soma cube inside.
Size: The diameter of the Rhombic Dodecahedron is 100mm
