"Martin Watson’s brilliant number challenge. Take the digits 0 through 9 and arrange them in the tray so that no digits of the same wood touch each other. 107 copies went to the IPP 21 Exchange and 30 copies were made available to the public." -Steve Strickland

"I always liked this design, and on a whim emailed Martin abour possibly making it available again. When he replied in the affirmitive, my only thought was "yay!" as I ran to the laser cutter. Digigrams was released at IPP20 and is a very clever packing puzzle. Each digit is represented, and there are only three solutions to pack them all into the tray. It's quite tricky.

Crafted with precision cut acrylic and walnut, with a solid grandillo bottom. Nice pleasing fit and a compact size means it won't take up tons of shelf space. 24 copies made for sale, may potentially make more in the future depending on how this batch goes." -Eric Fuller
