Mirii 6x4 - Polyhedral shape interlocking burr puzzle

We have started selling our new puzzle "Mirii 6x4."
This is our third version of the Mirii series polyhedral shape puzzle. This time, Juno has chosen six intersecting squares for the theme and has chosen all 15 possible shape pieces to be used for the 24 pieces burr puzzle.

The timbers which were used for Mirii 6x4 were PNG Rosewood, Koto and Jarrah from the left to the right on the image below. The edges of the pieces are all arrised. Even the insides of the checkouts are lightly sanded after the first coat.

The puzzle is very difficult but please be assured, we will provide you a very detailed step by step solution upon request. The solution will also tell you where to find good places to put rubber bands for temporary support to hold puzzle pieces.

During the production of the puzzle, Juno made a simple mistake for the quantity of the material and the number of the finished product doubled. He complained how many checkouts he had to make, how much sanding and arrising he had to be done. Yep, he is responsible to his mistake. We have more puzzles to sell than we planned but it is not yet a large quantity.

The puzzles on our online shop are all one-time productions and we won't make the same puzzles again. They are all limited products.
So, I believe that he won't make this puzzle in the future as well.

Happy puzzling everyone!

The 6th Auction Results

We held an eBay auction and it ended on 17th July.
This time, we had put 2 kinds of puzzles for 2 each, in total 4 puzzles.
One is "Mirii 6x4 pine version" and the other is "Mini 6 Board Burr #3."
The sales results are as follows:

Mirii 6x4 pine version #1 - AUD39.75
Mirii 6x4 pine version #2 - 44.00
Mini 6 Board Burr #3 - #1 - 26.00
Mini 6 Board Burr #3 - #2 - 26.00

The total amount was AUD135.75.

As we had promised, we went to the AWLQ (Animal Welfare League Queensland) and donated roughly half of the sales (AUD70.00) to support dogs and cats today. Here is the receipt of the donation.

We met some fluffy four-legged friends there. These are some pictures I took.

We live in the western hinterland of Gold Coast and don't go to Gold Coast often. So, we thought it's a good opportunity to go and see pelicans. There is a famous spot to see feeding pelicans in Gold Coast. These pelicans are all wild; the restaurant staff gives them fish offal at 13:30 every day and they know it and gather together.

Had a delicious lunch, saw pelicans and donated half of the sales of the auction, it was a lovely day.

We will soon sell the next puzzle.
Please look forward to it!
