Designer:Stewart Coffin
Craftsman:Stewart Coffin
Pieces:5, plus the tray

Four pieces are held in the tray by the four overhanging triangular sections. The objective is to add the "outhouse" piece to the tray along with the other four. The four pieces in the tray will slide in coordinate motion past the point where all four corners meet. Just before the extreme is reached, one of the four pieces can come out, which then allows the others to be removed. But getting the outhouse to fit is no simple matter. A difficult puzzle. Stewart made six in 1998. Number 134 in his numbering system.
