T-Slot Burr to Auction

We have put three puzzles up for auction on eBay!

Every puzzle starts from $1.00 AUD! Please note that the product price that is going to sell in our online shop after the auction will be 120.00 AUD.

Please have a look at the Pluredro eBay shop and join the auctions.

We will soon start selling level 18-8-1-1-3 T-Slot Burr puzzle. During the production of the puzzle, we had a few puzzles that we were reluctant to sell at a fixed price because of some imperfections even though all of them were fully functional to play with. So, we decided to put those puzzles on auction. Here are the brief notes for the three puzzles below.

2nd grade #1
A part of the puzzle pieces are sapwood and the surface of the pieces is slightly rough compared to the normal version.

2nd grade #2
Juno made mistakes when he made a couple of drill holes for the screws and he needed to fill those holes using bamboo skewers. The total quality of this puzzle is better than #1.

This prototype doesn't have any featured decoration grooves on the outer surface of the pieces. Quality of timber and finishing are not good as two of the 2nd grade ones.

As we have always done, we are going to donate a half of the sales of this auction. We used to donate to an animal shelter but this time we are going to donate for a wildlife cause.

In late January this year, we found a sulphur-crested cockatoo in the backyard and it looked very weak. It kept still on the ground.

Next day, we saw the same sulphur-crested cockatoo sitting just in front of the kitchen window and it looked like it could barely balance and stand on the lawn. So, we took him to the local vet and the vet said that wild animals can be treated by donations.

Therefore, we have decided to donate some money to the local vet for helping injured or sick wild animals. We will show you the result after we donate on this blog someday.
