Diagra – “The puzzle that keeps you up all night” The goal is to make a cube, and the other eight shapes, from the 8 pieces of the puzzle. The shapes are amazingly complex – even for Vinco! Vinco has also now added two additional challenges to be made with co-ordinated motion.
And you can’t use the grain of the wood to solve this one either. Not even for the basic cube shape. Because Vinco has used a selection of woods to make the pieces so nothing matches up.
Vinco collects many trees in his local area to create these puzzles including acacia, ash, beech, cherry, elm, larch, maple, oak, pear, plum and walnut. Timber variety may vary from puzzle to puzzle unless otherwise specified. The puzzles are finished with liquid bees wax to showcase the natural color and texture of the wood.
Cube size: 70mm x 70mm x 70mm
