Both the pieces and tray of this limited-edition puzzle are made of rigid massive hand-made paper! The pieces are over 1 cm (about ½ inch) thick which makes them easy to work with. Note the thickness of the orange piece lying on its side to the right in the picture below.

Squiangles is produced in a limited edition of 27 puzzles which are signed and numbered on the bottom. The pieces and tray are laboriously crafted by William Waite using the same hand-carved wooden-mold method as with the Monoliths of Rtiydiuy.
Four time-intensive steps were involved in the production:
1. Carving and finishing the molds for the tray and each of the 10 pieces.
2. Making paper each and every time a single puzzle is to be made.
3. Laboriously filling and packing the mold, and then letting the paper dry for a week.
4. Removing the pieces from the mold (often very tricky!) and trimming the bottom edges.
The large amount of time involved makes this more of a "labor of love" than a money-making project. Both designed and hand-crafted by William Waite, these puzzles are bound to be rare artifacts in the future.
The pieces are a conglomeration of squares and equilateral triangles (squares + triangles = Squiangles) and the pieces can fit together in many ways. There are at least two solutions to the puzzle. Can you find more?
