Interlocking Puzzles
This design is commonly referred to as "Crown of Thorns" and the tips of each piece is made pointed.
Each intersection requires six separate pieces to interlock.
Each piece is square and normally quite small (3/16" is about right)
The cutouts at the intersections are two times thickness long; and one half thickness deep.
The locations of the slots depends upon what you are making.
Most often the intersections are about one inch apart.
