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.

Nice, that looks like it took some serious time to construct.

^ There’s a magazine called Scroll Saw (?) that details how to do this. Routing the puzzle rings was the hardest part for me.

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?
