The last remaining copy of my MiSenary puzzle box, as entered into the IPP37 Nob Yoshigahara Design Competition (http://www.johnrausch.com/DesignCompetition/2017/).
It’s a beautiful wooden puzzle box requiring about a 100 moves to (fully) open.
I’ve made a total of 23 of these boxes, 3 for the competition, 10 in series I en 10 in series II, this one is #10 in series II. Due to the time consuming effort to make these I’m not likely to make any more of these. This is your last chance to get a copy directly from me and it’s the best looking one out of the 23 I saved for this special occasion. Pictures shown are of the actual puzzle.
