My first puzzle, done entirely with hand tools. I downloaded the plans from The Woodwright’s School website. I used scrap / soft wood just to practice and see how it turned out. The more it gets used the looser it becomes and the easier it is to solve. I’ll probably remake it someday in walnut, but for now it’s just a one-off.

Built onr of these in woodshop while in Junior High School. ( about 60 years ago)
The website indicated does not help in getting the plans.
