The Lost Treasure of One Tin Soldier
I was inspired by an old 60’s anti-war song called One Tin Soldier, and I had this really nice vintage box, but the interior space was pretty small to fit very much awesomeness. So, I had to figure out a way to keep the chest from being accessed.
It takes 35 moves to release the chest from its mount. There is an added unique feature in that this box is bottomless and has a few select sections that are cleverly locked into place.
I was able to use materials from my offcut bins and even managed to find and old padlock to go with it. There are two keys, one is very inaccessable (but possible if you have tiny enough fingers), the other is revealed once you move through the process of revealing new sections.
Materials used were Curly Maple, Bird’s Eye Maple, Walnut, Purpleheart, Oak, Wenge, Cherry, Spalted Maple, Red Cedar, Aromatic Cedar.
If you know the song, you just might guess what’s in the chest.
Questions, comments always appreciated. : )
