As the others have written, this is a wonderful puzzle. It moves this way, it moves that way, but how can you ... why did he ... OH! The aha hits you. As always with Eric's puzzles, you're never sure what part of the puzzle you should investigate because the craftsmanship is so precise that it gives nothing away by accident - what little is there is there by design, providing subtle clues that lead you to the solution if you're clever enough to notice them.
Oh my goodness! What a surprising solution. The aha moment was well worth the effort and unexpected. Box is also beautifully crafted.
I actually jumped a bit when the trick was found! What fun :-). Fit and finish are superb, as usual. Another winner in the "small box" series. I now have new entries in the "must have" portion of my monthly budget. Keep them coming, Eric. Each one is different and a fun challenge.
