Lock Box is a sequential discovery puzzle box. Its simple appearance hides a very complex mechanical mechanism that requires multiple discoveries to open. No gravity moves, spinning, tapping, banging or force is necessary or allowed.
I think this is one of my best designs to date. Multiple steps and discoveries are required, with knowledge of the mechanism coming in stages until the box finally opens to reveal its prize.
This puzzle is very precise and must be kept between 40 and 60 percent humidity at all times. Do not expose it to high humidity conditions under any circumstance. We do not guarantee proper operation if stored outside these conditions.

As always excellent craftsmanship, magnificent design. With an incredible desire to start investigating it
All the praise this puzzle got in the last years is absolutely justified. The solve is a clever journey with just the right amount of hints along the way. Amazing craftsmanship as always with Eric's work. And the new version which combines Claro Walnut with the aluminum part of the key is just beautiful.
A great sequential discovery puzzle with a lot of good clues along the way.
