This is a very cool packing design by Brendan with outstanding craftsmanship from Eric, here’s his description:
“The goal of Fano Blocks is to pack seven pairs of identical rectangular pieces flush into the box. These aren't just any pieces, however! They possess unique properties: any two distinct blocks share precisely one edge length in common and any set of two specific edge lengths are held by two identical blocks. The resulting number of edge-matching combinations creates a complicated problem. Finding even one of the eight possible solutions is an accomplishment.
Named after the Fano plane (the smallest finite projective plane with seven elements), this is an excellent puzzle for anyone into mathematics.
We used an extraordinary batch of Quartersawn Sycamore to make the boxes. By matching color throughout the process, we isolated gold-toned, two-toned, and a few strikingly white boxes. The bottom panel is solid Sapele floated in notches to allow for expansion. The seven-piece pairs are made from Leopardwood, Limba, Rosewood, Purpleheart, Zebrawood, Holly, and Yellowheart.”
Shipping cost to be determined at close of auction.
