Decorated Box

This was my entry in the IPP Design Competition held in Chicago in 2003, which took the honorable mention award.

People have told me they really like it because it is a functional puzzle box. Once you know the secret move you can open the box easily and use it. But solving the puzzle can take a bit of time if you don't know it yet.

The lid opens the same way as the Block Box. It has the same style hinges.

This is the first box I assembled with mitered corners. This was the ultimate challenge to making this piece and very rewarding. Mitering corners has opened up a lot of possibilities for designing new puzzles.

This is made from wenge, maple, and walnut.
