Pseudo Stretchy 12
Please understand the number of this puzzle that you can purchase is limited to one until the end of December.

As the name suggests, this puzzle is very similar to one of our earlier product, Stretchy 12. Actually, the puzzle assembly shape is the same as "Stretch-12", only the orientation of the 2x2 and 3x1 pieces is different. In Stretchy 12, three 2x2 pieces intersect at two corners; in Pseudo Stretchy 12, three 3x1 pieces intersect at two corners.
This difficult puzzle requires 15 moves to remove the first piece from the assembled shape and another 5 moves to remove the second piece. After Juno had finished making all checkouts on the 2x2 pieces, he realized that the puzzle had a shortcut solution involving rotational movement. He then made a simple modification on a couple of pieces to eliminate the shortcut.
The flat 3x1 pieces are made of our original plywood, as always. This time, we chose Satin Sycamore and Sassafras for the plywood. The 2x2 piece is made of PNG Rosewood, one of Juno's favorite wood species.
The puzzle is sold assembled. The solution to this puzzle will be supplied upon request by Burr Tools file format.
