This 24 piece burr puzzle was designed by Bill Cutler in 1978.

When Bill Cutler was describing his Visible Burr he said "I like to design burrs which are difficult to take apart. This requires irregular notches in the pieces, and I usually like to hide these in the interior of the puzzle. With the Visible Burr, I decided to make all of the notches visible to the solver. Solution of this puzzle can thus be done by analyzing the notches, rather then by using trial-and-error."

To enhance this view of the puzzle we chose to use much larger pieces. This should now provide you with the best possible view and a good chance to test your skill at solving by visual analysis as Bill hoped you would, rather than trial and error.

Between 1993 and 1999 there were just 30 of these puzzles sold by Bill Cutler and a few were sold earlier than that. The pieces were divided into 3 groups of 8, each group being made from a distinctive coloured wood. We've translated those colours into three Australian native hardwoods. This puzzle has been made from 1. Queensland Silver Ash 2. Flooded Gum (also known as Rose Gum for it's distinctive pink heartwood) 3. Queensland Blackbean.

Each piece has Mr Puzzle's signature routing on both ends. Each individual piece of the puzzle has been lacquered then buffed and waxed.

Size: 210mm x 210mm x 210mm (each piece 30mm x 30mm x 210mm) A very big puzzle! Packaged: Assembled by default. We can also ship disassembled on request.
