"John's latest box shows the typical quality and attention to detail of his work. The finish is absolutely beautiful, with the box and each piece hand polished with caranuba wax after a three step buffing. There are essentially four solutions to this packing puzzle and with a total of twelve slightly different variations, but what makes this puzzle unique is it's ability to make many different shapes outside the box. The pieces alone are a lot of fun to play with. Jerry did a fantastic job of crafting the 'burr' pieces and the tolerance is absolutely perfect, thanks Jerry!" -Eric Fuller
