Topless Box (2019)

DESIGNER: Eric Fuller
MATERIAL: Striped Quartersawn Sapele / Birdseye Maple / Paduak
RELEASE DATE: 5.17.2019
EDITION: 99 Copies Released
SIZE: 3.00 inches

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.

Tops in puzzlement.

The "Topless Box" is an enigma that is as good to look at, as it is to contemplate. It's got all of the mystery, and beauty you expect from the great team at CubicDissection. Not an easy solve, and loaded with clues when you start working it. I have not solved it, and that makes it the more intriguing.

This will blow your top!

I really liked this box. It has a really cool opening that may take a few attempts at finding. Once you know the solution, it’ll be a breeze to open.

Don't Get Boxed In

Don't get boxed in by your assumptions because Eric (RIP) was a master at exploiting them. Three gorgeous types of wood were used to construct this solid box which will certainly have you stumped as to how to open it for a while. The aha moment if very satisfying with the Topless Box.
