This is my take on the classic matchbox puzzle designed by Oskar Van Deventer. It consists of five boxes and five drawers. The parts are bonded together to make five assemblies. The goal is to arrange the assemblies so all boxes are filled with drawers. To add an additional step, I included magnets to the boxes and drawers. Besides giving it a nice snap feel, the magnets add an additional challenge since you must match polarity (some drawers won't slide into boxes). Lastly, the magnets hold it together during and after assembly which turned out to be a nice feature.
