Solution to: Eureka!

The upward force, needed to keep the block of wood with the brick floating, is equal to the weight of the block of wood with the brick. Turning the block of wood around does not change the weight, so the needed upward force stays the same, so the weight of the displaced water stays the same.

Conclusion: the water level stays the same.
