Burl Tile Puzzle
Designed and made by Stickman, you do need this puzzle!

Description from the designer:
Goal: Arrange tiles to complete burl patterns on both sides.

This puzzle has a single hidden chamber, accessed by manipulating all tiles on both sides to fully complete an intricate burl pattern. A special “runt tile” removes, producing a space for tiles to be manipulated like a traditional sliding tile puzzle. Breaking from tradition, tiles can also be rotated and exchanged from one side of the box to the other through use of its twisting end. A well-hidden trick will also allow them to lift up and rotate into different orientations within the box.
Once this puzzle is solved, internal logic bars can be flipped over and re-inserted to create an entirely different puzzle solving process. This secondary solution can lock tiles in place, so they can’t move until neighboring tiles are manipulated into certain positions. Managing to free a locked tile will at times also indirectly lock yet another tile in place. This adds to the challenge of an already difficult puzzle.

Puzzles were hand-crafted from leopardwood and walnut, with tiles and sides finished with exotic tamo burl. They measure 7.5” x 4.5” x 4.5” and are limited in edition to only 50 completed boxes.

Irmo puzzle box
Designed and made by Eric Fuller. Very rare !! Very challenging !!
According to Fuller's words: 
The idea for the mechanism in this box came to me months ago. I spent quite some time working out and prototyping the mechanism, which is completely unique. I showed the box to Jerry Slocum at the NYPP and he verified that the mechanics and solution have never been done before
I think it is probably the best box I have ever made.

Most of the work on this box is on the inside. Once solved, the mechanism is completely visible, although it cannot be modified or misaligned in any way.

The box is finished with laquer and then hand waxed and buffed to give the paduak a very nice shine with depth which glimmers when you rotate the box.

There is a clue engraved in the bottom of the box to help you on your way. Each box is signed.

This design won a first prize award in the IPP28 Design Competition.
