"Burr Puzzle" designed by Barlaham Benítez Vargas "Froy."
Folded by Annalisa. There are six puzzle pieces, each folded from a 7.5 cm square of kami.
Diagram provided here by the designer.
As soon as I saw this on akizhi's tumblr (check out their version here), I dropped everything and had to make it. I love puzzles, so this is right up my alley. Also, it’s kind of the perfect Christmas present for my dad (he likes puzzles too), so I thought I could make it and then I could just keep it until Christmas. That lasted about 12 hours. I had to show it to him, because he would think it was so cool! This is often a problem with origami presents; I just want to show them to people!
Once you get the hang of it, the units are pretty easy to make, but getting the hang of it might take a couple of tries. I found the instructions and diagrams a little ambiguous at times (the orientation of the picture not matching the text), so be prepared to fiddle with the paper a little until you get where it’s going.
