  1. Nicks Sticks - Mechanical Puzzle

    This was going to be a fun and challenging puzzle box right from the start, especially since I know a guy named Nick that just loves puzzles! There were two objectives on this one. I wanted to qualify this piece to being something that would fit into my 'Stem to Stern' category, which simply...
  2. 4D Puzzle

    This was a super crazy puzzle to build. First you should know the 4D stands for the 'Four Directions", N, E,W,S There were four customers. Each one representing each of the directions. Each of the four units came with codes written in ancient heiroglyphs that only one of the others would have...
  3. Bear Clan Chest

    Bear Clan Chest This rather large and bulky piece was one of my earlier Security Focused furniture designs. The doors and drawers below are housed within a inner compartment that moves back and forth on a set of wooden rollers, when its unlocked anyway. The main pillars seen infront block the...
  4. Skull Cage

    Skull Cage Every once in awhile I see an opportunity to lock up something that is unusual and this Skull shaped vodka bottle seemed to be just the right thing. The vodka (if you haven't seen it) is special in that it was tripple filtered through crushed quartz crystals, and the glass bottle...
  5. Breaking All The Rules

    Breaking All The Rules A fun puzzle box to build. Made from Purpleheart, Curly Maple, Ebony, and a few others that I can't recall at the moment. A fun experiment in using a glued up top for a lid. YOur courage is tested as the only way to solve this puzzle is to remove and break the stick...
  6. Eagle Nest Chest

    The Eagle Nest Chest I have been adding a combination locking system to hope chests for some time now and one day a fella commented that he would like to see the dials hidden behind a false panel, that it too would be locked from access. How it works: The nest sitting on top of the chest...
  7. Magnets & Secret Compartment for my Handgun!

    I had two goals for this project. First, upgrade our keychain holder that hangs by our front door. Second was to store and hide my handgun when it isn't in my pocket. Goal #1 was accomplished by building a 12×18 x 5" keychain holder made of cherry. It is finished in a couple coats of Deft...
  8. Stacking Jewelry Box

    As a Valentine's present this year, I decided to try out a new design that I had been brewing on for a while - a 3-part stacking jewelry box. I decided to have the design coordinate with a previous jewelry box - http://lumberjocks.com/projects/44426 - I had made so they would look nice next to...
  9. Super Secret Shelf

    Hey Guys, I made this shelf a way long time ago for my brother who needed a little security around his home. You see, his girlfriends teenage son had been lifting an extra pack of smokes here and there. The space up under the lid is only noticeable once pointed out, otherwise, hanging it on...
  10. Tall Side Stand with Hidden Compartment

    This is my most recent creation. It's a bit of a mutt as far as woods go, I should have paid more attention instead of just using whatever I found (obviously). It's a very tall nightstand or side table. I think the height makes it humorous but it also helps access the hidden compartment. To...
  11. Pinch an Inch - Puzzle Box

    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...
  12. Hidden/Secret Compartment in Wall Cabinet

    This cabinet is located in my 5'x5' bathroom. The cabinet is pretty boring on the outside. It's the surprise on the inside that most find cool. Inserting a shelf pin into the topmost rear hole runs a motor that raises a sliding panel. Insert the shelf pin into the next lowest pin position...
  13. I almost lost my marbles!

    I like this box! I think it looks pretty good, and I've never seen one quite like it. It started with an idea… build a box for a brother in law that collects marbles. It's about 12' x 9" x 4" high. I made smallish compartments to hold some of his favorites. It doesn't really allow them...
  14. Blackout - Upcycled Puzzle Box

    I came across this funky wood box, or something… The original boxy thing had the diamond shapes already out of the three sides and doors, and I added all the exotic wood parts. To me it already had a look like an antique lantern, though there was no evidence it was used as such, hmm, maybe an...
  15. Vanity Dresser

    This is may first official project. I used a maloof joint for the front legs, dovetails for the drawers, drawer case, and drawer divider, mortis and tenon for the mirror frame, and tusked mortise and tenon for the table to connect to the mirror frame. I also incorporated a hidden compartment...
  16. Dragos Lives! - Master Level SD Puzzle

    HI Guys, been awhile since I posted, been a busy year I reckon. After 4 years of it looking at me I couldn't resist the temptation any longer to retrofit this dragon themed box into a super amazing puzzle box conversion! There are 93 moves to find the very real silver coin in this sequential...
  17. Chevy Pick-up Bed Enclosure

    long story short.. Last summer I got really busy and started using my truck a lot to work in Brooklyn and the City I needed to secure my tools, and equip. I needed something, anything soon At first I literally threw something together in a couple of hours one night. I welded some square tubing...
  18. Armoire with Hidden Drawer Mechanism

    We have zero closet space in our 1920s Arts and Crafts home. I built two monster amoires to function as closets. The drawers were pretty big and I was inspired to incorporate a hidden drawer into one of them. This one has hidden drawers across the top. The drawer opens normally but once open...
  19. Hide Your Guns | Custom

    Here in the south we love our Guns and we love our pine wood (state tree of Arkansas). So why not combine them both? This is a pine bed with a hidden drawer style compartment in the foot. The drawer rolls out to expose a gun rack to house a four shotguns. No more having to sleep with them...
