Ready for a tricky logic puzzle? This is the woodblock puzzle: You have a 3-dimensional object made of wood. The top view and front view of the object look exactly the same; they are each a square with a smaller square centered on it. The question is, what would the side view of this object look like? There are two different answers to this problem; one answers for when only flat shapes are allowed, and the other answers for when curved shapes are allowed. Did you solve this puzzle?
