It’s a Cryptex. Yes, like the Da Vinci Code. It’s not quite as secure as the real one but still looks pretty cool.

The plan came from an older issue of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts. I think they also have it published in their book of scrollsawn boxes.

Excellent work! Is it functional as a cryptex or a simply beautiful piece of art?
