This is my version of a wooden safe, not secure by any means but is a place to keep paperwork that we know will be useful, Made with Oak & Poplar. note the aluminum cry handle turned on my metal lathe. Also the working lock inside were replicated from a real safe

Very, very cool. The mechanism is quite clever. Nice work!

Edit; it also just occurred to me that you could insert rods through the holes and hold magazines/newspapers.

Looks like a fun project. I could see making it for a kid to protect his/her favorite toys.

That looks very nice. Definitely a great conversation piece!

It just dawned on me that adding a few tricks from chinese puzzle box would make this quite “safe” ;-)

Anyhow, I like it just the way it is.
