"I combined the ideas of 'holey' 6-piece burrs with a trick used in other types of puzzles to create this design. The balls must be moved to particular inside holes for the puzzle to come apart. My first such design required the balls to be rolled to the inside of the puzzle, but this was received with scorn by some puzzle afficionados as there was no acceptable way to solve the puzzle!" -Bill Cutler
