Denver puzzlemaker Kagen Schaefer is an amazing craftsman who has accumulated awards and honors from puzzle-box enthusiasts worldwide. His work deserves at least one post all its own, but right now I can’t resist showing you his workbench, above, which is made from purple-heart (yes, it’s naturally that color), mutenye, and a small piece of ebony.

Kilothanks to Greg Delisle for this and a bunch of other great puzzle-box leads.
