Love this


The Ox Yoke puzzle is a traditional rope puzzle going back several hundred years.

As with most old puzzles, it has been known by many names.

Here’s 3 examples
The ‘Ox-Yoke Puzzle’
‘The Camel and the Needle’
‘Lover's Yoke’ Puzzle.

The shape and size also varies but the object of the puzzle remains the same.

The object of the puzzle is to move one ring on one rope loop across onto the other rope loop without untying or cutting the rope.

American Black Walnut,
Stainless Steel Ring
Polyester Rope

Finished with Melamine Lacquer

Being a natural product there will be some variation in the colour, grain pattern and shape of the timber element of this piece. Please consider this when purchasing.


I was inspired to make this puzzle after seeing one of my favourite makers on youtube make some and demonstrate how it works.

After some research into the puzzle I put my own twist on the basic design and produced what you see on this listing.
