There are 5 pieces that look like carpenter’s squares to fit inside the frame. The pieces must sit flat on the tray. You cannot turn them upside down because the rulers must face up and they are uneven on top.
It will not take you long to work out that frustratingly they are all different sizes and that laying them side by side everything seems just a bit too long to fit inside the frame. They always hang over the edge just a little bit. It always seems just oh! so close.
But there is a way to do it. A few deep breaths and a little patience…. and block out the rest of the world and just enjoy the concentration on the activity.
The name Winkel translates literally as “angle”. This puzzle is sure to please those in construction or the DIYer.
