According to my blog stats a lot of people want make puzzle boxes but most of them search easy to make puzzle boxes. Unfortunately, puzzle boxes have some mechanisms and they aren’t easy to make. Most of the puzzle boxes require very precise wood work. I designed this box a few days ago. I am inspired from an antique wooden rattle and a Chinese puzzle. My aim was designing an easy to make puzzle box. I made this box in my workshop in half day. This is a very easy to make puzzle box. Opening mechanism is very simple but confusing for a lot of people. This box has 6 removable panel.
I think everything is visible from photo. One of the pieces is removable Three small wooden pin and two small but very strong magnet keep in it’s place this removable piece. My box outside dimensions are 100x100x100 mm and inside is 70x70x70 mm. There is a lot of space inside. For panels I used 5 mm olive and end pieces are made from 10×10 mm mahogany. You can make ornaments on panels or fake buttons etc for a more confusing box.
