BonBon packing puzzle by Frederic Boucher is just a ton of fun. The set of five tetrominoes must be fully inserted in the rectangular box, and there is only one particular way to do it. The solution requires over a dozen correct moves and rotations, and must be found by careful analysis rather than random attempts.
Accommodating the unusual cutouts in the box was an exciting design challenge. The acrylic top is held in place with a tricky set of shoulders resulting in a tight fit while retaining a solid exterior presentation.
Our second release of Bonbon was constructed from the same Butternut we used previously. Butternut is usually a very soft wood, but we found an unusually dense billet with some nice figure and curl for this project. The pieces are made from Purpleheart, a dense hardwood. The fit and finish meet our accustomed accuracy, with parts sliding precisely and smoothly.
Here is an excellent blog review of BonBon by Zenpuzzler.
