The Two | Packing Puzzle
Part of the "scrap pack digit series", The Two is a Tetris inspired, volumetric packing puzzle with a piece in the shape of the number two. There are only 16 solutions.
This packing puzzle is a culmination of 11 pieces and made from reclaimed woods from my workshop; some exotic, some common, but all of it would have been destined to the scrap pile. The pieces create a 5 x 5 x 3 unit rectangle shape to fit into the box. The wooden box is made from reclaimed 2x4's that I used for event booth builds pre-pandemic. The puzzle is about 3 x 3 x 1.75 inches. I have designed the puzzle to give new life to the "less than perfect" pieces from other projects to make something beautiful, unique and fun!
Some pieces may vary in wood species but most will include the following:
Sapele, Black Walnut, Maple, Cherry, White Oak and Ash.
The pieces are finished with matte lacquer.
The box is unfinished pine.
I've had this puzzle for almost a year now and I bought it so that I'd have something to do with my hands that also presented a challenge. I wanted to avoid a puzzle that would become solvable via muscle memory and I feel like the unique shapes make this a continuing challenge in the best way possible.
