Recently, I was commissioned to recreate a puzzle box that had been damaged during a move. the Client wanted a dark finish, but I decided to a dark wood, Walnut. The box measure 7” wide x 5” deep x 3” high. Finished with an Antique Oil.

I take it the first photo is the box you were to re-create and the next 3 photos are your box. I understand how your box works. Very clever! How did the original box work? It doesn’t seem to have any of the structure yours does.

Hi Bob, the 1st pic should not have been included. Actually, I was making 2 of the boxes and inadvertently glued the lid together prior to making the latch. So it became a Walnut box. That’s why we make extras, :).
