Brochettes

Brochettes

Brochettes Composed of several dowels and cubes of wood. Some cubes are attached to the dowels and some are not. Once you’ve removed all of the dowels and cubes, the objective is to fit all of the pieces back into the frame. Brochettes is an unusual packing puzzle with many different ways to combine the cubes and the dowels, but with only one solution. For further challenge, assemble as shown with only one of each type of wood in each row and column, like a sudoku puzzle. Made in 7 woods by Jean-Claude Constantin. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different laser-cut wood puzzles, as well as metal puzzles and magic tricks.
