If you're not sick of Christmas Knick-Knacks yet...

Here's a few pictures of some puzzles I made last fall. I remember playing with wood and plastic versions of these when I was a kid. I thought it would be a good starter project to cut them out of aluminum.

There's a picture of the setup and fixture that I used to cut the diagonals. There are two types that can be cut with the diagonal setup, the real "Diagonal Burr", and the "Star Burr". I've only made one of the 6-piece regular burr, but I've got plans for the full 42 piece set (someday http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif).

Here's a link to some references on these types of puzzles and a lot more.
