The below paragraph is an excerpt from tramp-art.com.Definition: Whimseys are pocket knife carvings, often made from one piece of wood, that often have little utility art, These folk art objects are carved to amuse, amaze, illustrate and solve a carving trick or puzzle, as in, "How was that made?" Special knives and tools might be used to supplement the whittler's pocket knife to achieve complex and detailed whimsey carvings
Due to copyrighted material i just made links to the pictures instead of just swiping them
here is a puzzle LINK to a ball puzzle looks like could be made from jinga blocks or bigger oak stock, basswood would do if your not rough with it.
This LINK is to the solution and the only instruction ive found on this small puzzle, looks like this feller made this puzzle out of 3/4" x 3/4"stock i would take a guess and say each piece is 2 or 3 inches long at most.
It should be a easy project to all but the raw beginner.
