Topless Box by Eric Fuller was my contribution to the legendary Apothecary Puzzle Chest. Topless is an unusual challenge; with two lids and no top, how can it be opened? The solution is tricky and will surprise you. Originally released in 2012, we found strong demand with our re-release last year and decided to make one more batch for newer collectors who have been unable to find a copy.
No bumping, banging, shaking, spinning, gravity moves, or excessive force is neecessary or allowed.

Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.
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!
