Bottle madness 1

Bottle madness ft

This is my weekend project for my third bottle. This is a simple puzzle. But I have a four bottle set and I make that puzzles as a decorative display stand for them. This bottle is an imitation of a first coke bottles produced about 1900’s. If you are a bottle collector or looking for an easy coffee table puzzle for your home decoration, this project may be an alternative for you.

There are a base and a cap piece. The cap piece is fixed to the base with white ropes. The aim of the puzzle is to take apart the bottle by removing the rod from inside of it.

The puzzle is a well known disentanglement puzzle. I adapted it to the bottle cap. Simple but different from commercially sold bottle puzzles.

The external dimensions are about 100x100x220 mm. If you want make your own puzzle, you can download from here free PDF file (0.6 MB on secure server box.com) that include drawings, dimensions and craft tips.

      Hello, I haven’t a drawing for solution. But solution of this puzzle is similar to spider web puzzle. For solving the puzzle you will use red rope. First you will take the loop from the center and pass it from left side hole over the left side bead, and after you will repeat same thing for right side. (pass the loop from right side hole over the right side bead). You will free the center rod. I hope this explications help you.
