Picture of 12 Piece Lego Mechanical Puzzle (Lime Time)

With a few basic pieces you can make this really cool mechanical (or interlocking or burr) puzzle. It's a challenge to take apart and to put back together again too!

I call this one Lime Time because it's made of lime colored bricks and the only 1x2 tiles I have, clock displays. 

Step 1: Materials

I love these puzzles. Though, LEGO makes it much to easy for me to cheat : /

Making it from LEGO does make it easier to cheat but I kinda like that since I can never figure them out lol.
