This simple puzzle is one of my favorites. It's has 3 pieces (2 are the same) and takes some fun sliding and turning movements to assemble and take apart.

You need to make 2 of this shape piece. To build it strong and to the right dimension, make the bottom layer in plates, the next in bricks, and the top in tile. I used different parts to make each one, as you can see in the pictures.
