Stir The Coffee
Kevin Sadler wrote about Stir The Coffee:
“Stir The Coffee is a significantly complex burr puzzle intended for people who really enjoy burrs – it is not for the beginner. I have known Dan Fast for many years and when he starts a hobby or project he totally immerses himself in it and ABSOLUTELY masters it. He has been playing with Burrtools for a good few years now and has created some fabulous designs which he puts online. Dan’s own personal preference is for really high level burrs but he is in touch with the rest of the puzzling world and realizes that such puzzles are a very small niche. As part of his mastery of the art of design, Dan has worked out exactly what the average burr puzzler wants…a challenge with a moderate level that remains stable during play. He also has a superb eye for aesthetics and makes shapes that are just beautiful.
The challenge here is to discover the correct moves which are remarkably well hidden. The structure is extremely stable throughout and the pieces dance back and forth to stir the coffee in the beautiful cup before the simple but stunning teaspoon is removed and then you can empty the cup.”

Every piece of the puzzle is precisely cut and very well made; you cannot find its equal anywhere else. The diversity in wood makes each puzzle a unique masterpiece.
