The Bung Box
This is a very simple and cheap puzzle box made using an unfinished stock wood box from the dollar store. The most expensive part would be the four neo mags if bought at a retail location.
I used an old croquet mallet handle for the center lock spindle and I had some bits of this and that I had laying around. I did add the extra base so that the pin runs through the original box bottom and into the new, thicker base. Between the two bottoms I added some strong neo magnets so that it snaps into place and doesn’t move so easily.
In case that wasn’t just enough, I added a gravity pin to the original box so that you need to flip the box upside down before you attempt to twist the base 180 degrees from its start position.
I normally sell wooden lock plans on my website for just this sorta thing, but this particular design isn’t there. So, I make this my give away to you all, my woodworkin’ bro’s. All the information you need is in the pics to figure out how to make one, lol.
Try making one of these for the kids, grandkids, friends, they will love them.
Yes, my mind just doesn’t get enough of this. ; )
