This is a Craftsman’s Range version of the Boston Tea Chest puzzle released January 2006. 60 Made.
An original design by Brian Young. Made by Mr Puzzle Australia.
The puzzle has its original card and solution.
I’ve opened and checked this puzzle just before listing. I’ve fully solved it. I think I’m the only person who’s ever played with it.
The puzzle is a nice working fit, not tight. There’s a small resin sack in the end grain of one piece. On the other side there’s one piece that doesn’t fit quite as well as the rest. Shown in photos. The rest of the puzzle is in excellent condition.
Text from Mr Puzzle website:
The object of the puzzle is to find the T inside the Boston Tea Chest.
The locking mechanism is much more complex and therefore more difficult than the Standard Range made for IPP26 in August 2006 was.
You will have to disassemble the burr to find it.
I got the idea behind this puzzle from an old Phillipe Dubois puzzle. The T shaped pieces were originally two sets of mirror-reversed triplets. He changed these pieces to ensure they were all different, giving it a unique solution, now separating on one axis only. I also added locking mechanisms that will ensure the puzzle is more difficult to disassemble.
For full disassembly there’s a rotational move later in the puzzle.
Hint: A computer will not help you reassemble it.
The puzzle is made from Australian hardwood called Queensland Blackbean. Locally grown in our area.
Size: 90mm x 90mm x 90mm
