Hey it looks like I can edit this thing... well anyhow I just wanted to say thanks to those people who picked me as a finalist. I added a few pictures to this page -- a selection of some puzzles that I made a number of years ago on a laser cutter. If I win this contest, I'll put puzzles like these back into production. I will also use it extensively for making jigs and cutting fixtures for other puzzles.


The micro-scale of these things is just amazing! That is super fine detail. Q: Do you use vector files to design these things? Q: Do you nest the units together when cutting? Q: What material are you using? Just fabulous works of art!

Very nice...is that mahogany ?

Wow!!! A true craftsman. Can't wait for volume 2.

This instructable is amazing! You can definitely tell you put a lot of time and effort into it. Good luck!

As someone who loves origami... this is really impressive workmanship, and the attention to detail is stunning. To exaggerate slightly, if you showed me one of these back at your house after a date over a cup of tea, I'd probably go all the way with you... assuming you're over 18...

This is the best project by far. I will enjoy making and solving your puzzles. Good Luck.

Gotta vote for this projest, even though I have no idea what is going on there.

Wow! These are beautiful. I've been known to buy things like this. Thanks for sharing.

this is by far my favorite instructable. i would have voted for you even above my own if it was a finalist. i can't wait for volume 2!

Got to love your puzzle design.. +1!
