This is a Japanese style puzzle box that I made about 4 years ago. The box is made from some lovely West Australian SheOak with a wonderful lace grain. This is a 19 move box to open and making it was an exercise in accuracy. The remarkable thing is that even after 4 years, all the slides and joints are tight and there has been no movement at all in the sheoak, winter or summer. It has been oil finished to 1000 grit and is ultra smooth.
I got the plans for this box from Bruce Vineys website in the UK.
It is one of those projects that whenever the grandkids visit they always ignore their Nintendos and try and succeed at opening this Ibox!
