I’d like to try making a Japanese puzzle box, but I’m having some trouble finding entry-level plans. Can anyone suggest some?

Check out Jeff Vollmer’s book called “Puzzle Boxes” – it has a great DVD with it… informative and funny!

Hey Wiley,

Though not exactly a Japanese puzzle box site, this site does feature many different kinds of puzzle boxes. Some use neo magnets, some use gravity pins, some use combination locking systems, all great fun.
