Oops! It has been a while since I have updated this site. What have I been doing in the last few months? In October, my studio-mate and I moved our whole workspace. The move was into an adjacent studio in the building. My new workspace is very cozy and I have been enjoying finishing up with the Dodecahedron Boxes. The Dodecahedron Box run has proven to be the most challenging and yet satisfying run I have taken on. I have learned a whole new respect for patience and precise timing through my work with these boxes. Many would think so much of my time was spent assembling such a complex construction.. I also though this would be the case. However, I was surprised to have spent less time assembling the Dodecahedron Box than most of my other work. The majority of time spent has been dedicated to a highly fine-tuned finish. Here are some more pictures of the Dodecahedron Box run.

The For Sale page and the Dodecahedron Page have been updated. I've been busy with a special glue-up process for making pentagons that will become the sides of the Dodecahedron Boxes. Click here to see photos.

I have just returned to home to Portland, Oregon after a most incredible trip to Tokyo for the 24th International Puzzle Party. This was my first time participating in the IPP. I met many great puzzle collectors and designers. It was overwhelming to say the least.
