Puzzle Box

I created these a while back and never got round to posting them

The boxes are quite simple to make, but can take people hours and hours to solve. I have given a few away as presents and have had plenty of fun infuriating people at school with them.

Two different boxes, the one on the right hasn't been sanded or oiled

Construction

As is visible in the picture below, the box is made up of an inner MDF box covered in thin slats, the bands serve only to hide the joins of the tabs and improve to boxes appearance. If anybody is interested i may write a full article on how to make one of these boxes.

In this picure you can see how the bok opens, you can see the magnets in the corners that help keep the box shut
