"As soon as I saw this design on Ishino's site I knew I wanted to make it. The unique design of the burr pieces was interesting enough, but when I assembled the puzzle (note that I did not say solve! I gave up after an hour or so...) I also discovered that there is a lot of interaction between the pieces and the sides of the frame. This is truly a unique design. This puzzle is very stoutly made. The Canarywood internals are connected to the outer Paduak ring with a half lap joint. This technique takes more time to make but results in a MUCH stronger joint then simply gluing the endgrain flush with the side of the ring." -Eric Fuller
