I've got wood!!!

Dizzy Cube
I am pretty addicted to the "Turning interlocking cubes" - these are interlocking solids which sequentially dismantle but at some point they require 2 or more pieces to undertake rotational moves (sometimes many many rotational moves) before complete disassembly is possible, hence Burrtools is of no use whatsoever apart to show where the pieces should finally end up.

I think I got addicted first to these whilst helping with the translation of Bernhard Schweitzer's articles for the CFF journal. Here are 3 more he has sent me:
Ludlow by Richard Gain
Tumbler  by Jos Bergmans
Dizzy Cube by Chi ren Chen

Lovely wood and a fun trio to explore (only 2 done so far)
