The great thing about making retrofit puzzle boxes is that the raw vintage wood box is out there waiting to be found and reused.

Everyone has seen one of these English Leather wood boxes out there I am sure. The company used them as a marketing gimmick in the 80’s. I found one and put it to good use!

It was an interesting build since the bottom of the box was a shallow tray as opposed to the large lid. Turned out kinda freaky looking I reckon.

Fun, crazy, and well-done project. Wonder what it smells like?

Pretty nice buddy. I like how you can take ANY box and change it to something cool.
