Hello everybody!
My life put me off any wood working projects for about 3 years. I’m back and here is a little puzzle box made from cherry wood. 3/4 thick peace of lumber was hand sliced and planned to about 1/8. Grooves and dados made on the router with 1/16 straight bit. First picture shows box finished with carnauba wax and the rest just before polishing, cleaning and waxing. Last two revels the “secret”. 8 moves are required to open top compartment plus 3 more to open small bottom.
Thank you,

Aw man! That it tool cool.
I had a wooden puzzle box from Disneyland when I was a kid. (Haunted Mansion)
Did you come up with the layout yourself or did you find the plans out on the web?
I would love to build one of these.
