Originally released in very limited numbers in 2012, Topless Puzzle Box was my contribution to the legendary Apothecary box. I always loved the design and decided to make another batch for the many newer collectors who have been unable to find a copy.
I've seen a fair number of boxes and this one has what I believe are some unique characteristics. Unfortunately, I can't show much detail of the inside of the box without giving away the workings. I can say that the box has two lids, and neither a top nor a bottom. Figuring out how to deal with that conundrum will hopefully get you on your way...
These boxes are constructed from a plank of very nice striped sapelle which gives a ton of shimmer. They are designed with longevity in mind and should function fine regardless of humidity. I'm VERY happy with how they came out.
99 copies made for sale, each signed and dated. This puzzle is shipped assembled.
I haven't solved this puzzle box yet. Aside from the difficulty, it's an amazing piece of craftsmanship. Anything that Cubic Dissection makes you can be certain that their production quality will always be incredible.
I don't want to know how much time went into getting the details just right in this box! Very satisfying solve experience (mine went quickly but only because I've come to expect the seemingly impossible from Eric's mechanisms!) Gorgeous as always and meticulously detailed. Now I just have to decide what I'd like to put inside...
Well crafted in beautiful, rich looking woods, this box is simple yet ingeniously clever! At first there doesn't appear to be any way to open it beyond removing the opposing magnetic lids. However, after carefully inspecting the box, thinking logically, and just relying on instinct, I uncovered a clue that helped me ultimately figure it out. Very satisfying! Wonderful to play with and solve over and over. I truly appreciate the expert craftsmanship and simple, yet amazing mechanism for locking the box. Well done CD!
