I just solved this f'er!
I bought this wooden puzzle for my father while I was in Chinatown. It looks so beautiful in person with its sharp edges and dark stain. I took it out of the box to look at it and it fell apart in my hands! I looked EVERYWHERE online for how to solve it and finnaly did it myself by just looking back at the picture then what was in my hands. I think I will keep it and have it stay on my desk to remind me of how smart I am .
