    It was in Popular Woodworking magazine. Jan. 1998 pg 38, per Mike in Nanaimo and Greenfield Bob has made it. I saw this on another forum. Perhaps they can help you.

      I have made the wonder puzzle you are talking about but I let my last pattern go without making a copy of it.

      I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

        Fortunately, Bob let me have a copy of the wonder puzzle pattern a little while ago .

        I've attached a copy.

          Hi Harris;
          You probably saw it on my Woodworking Friends multi board woodworking site. There have been several threads over the months about it.
          I have made quite a few of them and they are a real brain teaser . I have made one for all my grand children and they are quicker at putting them together than I am.
          Here is one both opened and closed.
          I got my pattern via email quite some time ago but I don't know if it is copy writed or not so unfortunately I don't share it until such time that I know for sure that it is safe to do so. It probably is safe and he probably checked it out but I don't like to take chances on that sort of thing.
          W.Y.

            Thanx, Gill, for the pattern. Can you tell us what the overall dimensions of the block are?

              Hi Bruce

              Bob gave the dimensions as being about 2½" by 1¼". Here's a piccy of a completed puzzle he made from red oak and walnut:



              Hope I'm not stepping on your toes here, Bob .

                  Hi Dan

                  The plan is actually attached to my first post post in this thread. Just open the attachment and copy it to your computer.

                    I removed the pattern because I was nervous about copyright issues...if we can resolve them, I'll repost the attachment.

                      Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
