My latest creation Hope you enjoy.
Four moves to open the box so far, working on adding a lockable/ puzzle lid for the inside of the drawer.
There are 4 magnets in the back of the drawer and 4 mounted in the body of the box that are facing north to north to give a “spring” action when it is solved.
There are also another 8 magnets inside the back of the box in the locking mechanism to retain the buttons in their home or locked position.
Finished the box with water based blue dye, cutting board sealer and parifin wax to finish with a little added elbow grease. Below are some of the before pics just after I starting sanding.
The box itself was a great puzzle to assemble and design. I designed it entirely on inkscape.
In total including magnets, guide pins and pieces cut on the glowforge as it sits right now there are 133 separate pieces. The box measures 4"x4"
Thank you for you time, hope you enjoyed.
