Trick chest I shipped out earlier this week. (Wanted to wait so the client would have a surprise when he unpacked it.) The bottom nine drawers is one of my Ada puzzles. For this one, the goal it find the sequence of opening and closing drawers so you end up with all nine drawers open. Oh, and there are many paths but only one where all end up open. Add it takes 33 moves.
.
I like this solution because you can readily figure out how the drawers open and close. Quick to have some satisfaction. But I’m hoping it takes much playing to find the path to the goal.

The case is from a lovely board of Figured, Birdseye Birch I got from Groff and Groff lumber. Epifanes Varnish did a nice job of bringing out the figure and a glow to the Kiaat.
