Objective
Assemble the pieces to form the shape shown

"Kerry started out with one of Coffin's earliest designs (#10) which no one has made for a while to my knowledge. Giant Steps is an Altekruse variation which results in a very unique shape. While not extremely difficult to solve, it is a fun diversion. The work is quite nice, with just a bit of looseness which can be an advantage if you live in a humid climate or do not store your collection in a climate controlled environment. There is also a tiny bit of tearout on some of the edges, most of which is obviated by the laborious beveling which has been applied to every edge on every stick. All in all a solid effort, and a bargain at the sale price." -Eric Fuller
