This is the cryptex from the Da Vinci Code. If you haven’t read it/seen the movie, it’s basically a puzzle vault/box. In order to open it you must solve the riddle and spell out the answer correctly. I got the pattern from a magazine called scrollsawer which I found at a local library. The riddle and Buddha on the ends were done on a laser engraver. I had intended the letters be done on the laser engraver too but that didn’t work out so I had to wood burn them last minute.
I used: walnut, oak, and cherry. The dowels are also walnut
