Description

Forgive the terrible picture, but seems I can't load pictures any other way than through smart phone, and can't figure how to crop through phone. Better pictures of puzzle can be seen through Stickman website.

This Stickman “Lighthouse Puzzlebox” (No. 20) took quite a while to assemble from its original spare parts, and even longer to figure out how to properly align all threads during construction to make it function properly. Robert tells me that it was crafted to pay homage to the spirit and respect of Louis Hoffmann. I don’t really know who that is, but at least one of them is a genius, and clever is an understatement for this puzzle.


This puzzle had to be altered slightly from the original design, but not really that much. It still requires a minimum of 14 unique steps in order to reach its two hidden compartments. However, new instruction books had to be prepared for it, as the last few steps require solving things a bit backwards from the original design. Discovering a way to accomplish that was also quite a challenge, and it made my head hurt.

The base of this puzzle is labeled as limited edition 25 out of 28. It is crafted from maple and purpleheart, with a walnut and paduk base. It stands about 10” tall, and comes with its own revised, fully illustrated, instruction book. The puzzle is in perfect working order with no defects.

In the spirit of full disclosure, there is a good chance that another one of these can eventually be completed, and perhaps even a third – though that would be a new and intimidating challenge based upon the remaining parts.
