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. 

87 total copies available for this release, each signed and dated. 40 copies in Figured Waterfall Sapele, 51 copies in Figured Quartersawn Sapele. This puzzle is shipped assembled.
