The HexTrivet

The HexTrivet is the first in what I hope will be an entire line of "Practical Puzzles" which will be both puzzling and useful.  This puzzle is meant to be set on the dining table as a hot-pad or trivet.


If you get bored waiting for your meal, you can always take the puzzle apart and try the challenge of reassembling it.  Even when shown how, many people can't get this back together again.  But don't worry, if you don't have it together when the food comes, just place a few pieces near each other and they can still act as a trivet.

The HexTrivet can be put together in 96 different color combinations, but only one correct solution shows a nice symmetrical design.

This is put together, but still wrong!


  • zebra wood and maple
