Triple Cross Puzzle

This weekend i spent many hours with a chisel trying to create this handmade puzzle. The puzzle is called the triple cross puzzle and consists of six pieces that lock together to form a 3D cross. I was unhappy with how loose and rough my first go at it turned out so i stated from scratch and made a second one which turned out much better.
