Upon receiving this as a gift, I immediately loved the visual effect of the puzzle. Then, over the course of a few days, I studied the puzzle - taking out and reinserting a few pieces at a time. Finally, I had the nerve to go for it. I disassembled it and (I'm not boasting here - just the facts) I had it together in about 20 minutes. Then, over the next few days, I did the puzzle from the four different angles - upside down, etc., always finishing within 30 minutes. Now remember, it only 22 pieces, so 30 minutes is not really such a fast time.

I still find the puzzle fun to do after numerous completions. It's like a barometer of your concentration. If your mind wanders, the time gets longer. If you're fully concentrated, you get done much more quickly. I like to grab a hot cup of black coffee and sit down with the puzzle. Always a challenge. I keep changing the direction so I don't memorize it - no fun in that!

I will add two things:

The puzzle, initially, has a strong burnt-wood odor to it. I guess it could be bothersome to some people, but it does fade in time.

My first puzzle had to be exchanged. This base is 6 layers of wood. The bottom piece was becoming unglued. Uncommon Goods happily exchanged it.

All in all, I recommend this for puzzles lovers and fans of nice, geometric wood working.

First of all, and most important, I was completely surprised there were no instructions included with this very complex puzzle and after going back to the website, still have no real idea of how to use this product.

Second, it would be nice to have some kind of cover over the pieces.

      My 11 year old daughter loves this puzzle but it arrived with one broken piece. It was packaged with plenty of protection and it doesn't seem to hinder her enjoyment, but it is fragile.

                We love it. We have already put it together several times and it's just as fun and challenging each time. We like to work on it together and sometimes compete to see who can get it done the quickest.

                Everything came quickly and as described.
