Happy New Year Guys!

Just fresh out of the holiday season I couldn’t resist getting in the shop to play a little.

In the end I made this 7 moves to open Vintage Retrofit Puzzle Box that challenges the skills of the best puzzle solvers out there.

I may add a small embellishment in the bottom of the two drawers to cover the maple pins. I am sure I have something just right somewhere.

Essentiallly, one needs to figure out how to unlock each sequence in order to unlock the next one until the two drawers slide to the back and unlock the lid.

Great fun indeed. Someone mentioned it was nsowing out, ...I never noticed, lamo!

Very nice did you make up the plans yourself or find them somewhere?
