The Hex Flex won both Grand prize and People Choice awards along with the Battery Operated Box also winning first prize at the 2023 IPP Design Competition !!!

My newest creation, the Bookmark Box is now posted for sale. There are 3 different versions. A functional bookmark is part of each puzzle box. These are made using a Japanese woodworking process called Yosegi Zaiku. If you would like to see me demonstrate this in person, I will be demonstrating it at the Kezurou-Kai event in Oakland, CA in a few weeks. Hope to see you there.

Another fun Yosegi video here. Many more videos on my Instagram.

The Plus Box has been added to the gallery page. I am very excited to have collaborated with Akio Kamei to make a new creation, Tornado Box. Kamei was a huge inspiration to me when I began woodworking and it is a huge honor to make a colaboration work with him. This along with the Virus Box have been added to the Gallery page.
