George’s Table is a big version of the Candy Wrapper puzzle. When George Miller had seen the Candy Wrapper, he is certain that he would like to have a big bronze form. By means of 3D-printing and a metal foundry, he did well in constructing two huge puzzle tables, although not well-designed as a puzzle. This version is a puzzle table in smaller size which can be taken apart and assemble together again as a puzzle.
It is called George’s table because George has made a prototype of Oskar’s work. However, this prototype is no longer a real puzzle. Oskar has turned this table into his original design in order to make it a real brain teaser. You can first take it upside down in order to see that it is made of three spirals going through each other. The solver can take out one of the spirals and then the second of the spirals and another spiral until there are only three pieces left and everything falls apart very easily. The idea in solving this puzzle is to disassemble it and then try to construct it back to its original shape. Playing this puzzle toy involves small and accurate movements like that of movement of fingers in order to place the spirals in exactly the right spot. The solver can improve the strong connection between whatever the eyes see, whatever the hands do and become more aware of how the brain relates to the information.
