Objective
Assemble the 6 very small pieces into the standard 6 piece burr shape

"I was working hard on the Splined Boxes and hit a bit of a wall...I needed a diversion. I noticed some offcut scraps that turned out to be almost exactly .25 inches square, and so I spent the rest of the afternoon trying to make some very small 6 piece burr puzzles out of them. Not as easy as you would think on a full size tablesaw! Unfortunately most of them did not turn out, but a few did and quite nicely at that. These burrs are the standard 6 piece design with a solid key piece. I've always admired his work, but now I have a newfound respect for Allan Boardman's work!" -Eric Fuller
