Wooden Fractal Tray Puzzle – Hilbert Curve

Wooden Fractal Tray Puzzle - Hilbert Curve

Wooden Fractal Tray Puzzle – Hilbert Curve Please note that wood colors vary! This original design is brought to you by Martin Raynsford and was originally funded through a Kickstarter campaign. There are several fiendishly complicated tray puzzles based upon space filling fractal curves. The Hilbert Curve was first described by the German mathematician David Hilbert in 1891. A square space filling pattern drawn to it’s 6th iteration. This is the easiest of the different puzzles from Martin.  Made from a high quality birch laser plywood sheet, the natural look of the wood will show natural colour variations. The material is sanded and oiled to create a superior finish.  Some of the puzzles have been dyed with wood dye.  The name of the puzzle is displayed on the front, while the designer is displayed on the back.  

Trying to see how the pieces fit and re-assessing where they can go if they do not fit is a good exercise to check and re-evaluate the choices. Each piece can only come in one place, so there is no compromise and negotiation that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to continually re-evaluate his decisions and learns to be patient with the process because it is an integral part of the game.
