"By now, repeat customers are aware of my love for 3 piece burrs. When Frank emailed me this puzzle I was very interested by it. While it has the appearance of a three piece burr, it uses six identical pieces to make a stable and difficult assembly. The construction was quite challenging - at first I tried to mill the square hole by gluing a single piece into the channel left by a router bit. However, I could never get the endgrain to match, even when I used the same plank of wood. I settled on a glued up symmetrical assembly which is attractive and stable. The internal pieces are milled from solid stock, and a spline reinforces the weak .25" square internal joint between then two internal pieces." -Eric Fuller
