As most of you know already, I like to design puzzle boxes that feature wooden mechanical locking systems. Add to that a passion for recycling, or upcycling as I call it.
I like to find unique vintage boxes in antique stores and then retro fit them with the locking mechanisms. This one is a fine specimen of leather bound boxes.
Every different kind of material was used from my offcut bins. Now, this lovely box is made all the more desirable with it’s lil 9 moves to open retro-fit.
I just couldn’t bear making a design that would have had me drill through the detailed leatherwork.
The ‘wand’ is what makes everything move inside.
Comments and questions always enjoyed.
