The idea for the Escalating Box came from a couple of different mechanisms I'd been fooling around with. I was going to release them as two fairly simple separate boxes but realized that I could put them both into one trickier box. I made a poll on our Facebook Group and everyone overwhelmingly voted for a single, more difficult box. Done and done!

I got to the drawing board and realized not only could I put both mechanisms together, but that they would interact making the sum more difficult than the parts. Finally, just for fun, I added a third tricky lock before the final release move. Be careful what you ask for, facebook friends!

This is a fun solve, about medium in difficulty, and one that rewards progressive solving and manipulative experimentation. Construction is beautifully realized with a Curly maple box and several exotic wood options for the lid.

Just Fun

Once you figure out how to shake, rattle, and roll it, all in the right direction, the box just comes apart as smooth as can be. Great wood and great machining.
