Stable Boy

Place the five pieces in the 4×7 tray so that none can slide, individually or in a group.

This is a miniature in the style of Vladimir Krasnoukhov's Anti-Slide puzzles. George Bell, who mentioned anti-slide puzzles to me in 2015, discovered that the pieces have a unique packing in a circle whose diameter is approximately 5.6765 times the side of a piece cell.

You can sometimes obtain Stable Boy from Wood Wonders Online.
