Hi friends, Dob here and today we bring you an experimental grid I was lucky enough to construct with the inimitable Kate Chin Park. I wanted to create some kind of small tribute to woodworking, one of my all-time favorite hobbies, and who better to clue it with than a badass professional woodworker such as Kate. I still can’t believe she wanted to do it, but I’m so happy she did, because I think what we ended up with is challenging, but unique and easy on the eyes, and I’m proud of it. Here’s what Kate has to say:

“This puzzle is really Dob’s baby, but I was super chuffed that he asked if I wanted in. The topic is admittedly a bit niche (as is the related grid art, which elicited a major “oooooooh” from me when I first saw it) but we think it’s solveable and fun for everyone!”

As always, if you solve it, stream it, or have any thoughts, let us know via email or in the comments below. Thanks and enjoy!
