Three-Way Cross Puzzle

This puzzle not only challenges you to separate the three pieces but to re assemble them as well. The puzzle is made up of three blocks of solid wood, 1” x 3” x 4”. One of the blocks is cut out as shown in Figure 1. Two blocks are cut out as shown in Figure 2.

A good varnish or oil finish on all the surfaces of each piece makes this an attractive puzzle.
