THE 36 from Chun Keung LEUNG byMaurice VIGOUROUX for ARTELUDES
Finally available, this puzzle is one of the masterpieces presented by ARTELUDES. A masterpiece of design and realization presented in the most precious woods and a luxurious realization.
The only burr36 that we knew and had made was the BURR36 of Jacques FROSSARD. Published in a small number of copies it was quickly sold out. So here is a new BURR of 36 pieces for your pleasure.
Rarely has a puzzle required so much investment from a craftsman and his creator. It is an extraordinary example of wood craftsmanship and game creation. Many tests had to be done and many non-functioning pieces were put in the fire. This is probably one of the most labor intensive puzzles we have ever done.
The cumulated length of all the pieces is 1m80!
The goal of the game is to take it apart. Reassembling it without Burrtool is almost impossible.
Its small size It was created by Chun Keung LEUNG and made by Maurice VIGOUROUX in precious woods: Black Ebony, Rosewood and Violetwood. It is a real jewel!
Difficulty to disassemble : 9/10
Difficulty to reassemble : 11/10
Level : 18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.4.6.5
Its small size makes it easy to hold in the palm of your hand. It is a real jewel!
The high price of this game is explained by its rarity, as well as by the time it takes to make and adjust it, and by the preciousness of the woods used. Each puzzle is assembled and disassembled several times to make sure it works properly and each piece is adjusted.
Other THE36 in different versions are available on ARTELUDES. You will find a version that has been modified by Jack KRIJNEN.
The game is delivered without solution. On request, a BURRTOOL file will be sent to you by e-mail.
Many thanks to Stéphane C K LEUNG for his kind permission.
