This is nine nails version of the classical “Seven nails” puzzle. The aim of the puzzle is balancing eight nails on the center nail. The wooden base is a decorative stand for puzzle. The center nail is fixed to the base and eight other nails are removable.
I made only a decorative arrangement for this puzzle. I was aiming that the base looks like a lathe tool post. This is a very easy puzzle for making. But if you don’t know the solution or if you don’t see before similar puzzles, this puzzle is very difficult to solve. A nice fun on the coffee table for friends.
