I just can’t resist the urge to utilize a couple of Yardsticks and turn them into an awesome little puzzle box!

To allow for adhesion between parts the back side of the ruler has been planned to a clean and glueable surface.

This one is the first in a series of 10 Yardstick designs. This is going to be fun!

Odd Fact: It took about 1.5 yardsticks to build this puzzle. Att the rough cost of @10 per antique store yardstick, thats about $15. Any average exotic wood would be half that. Interesting.
