Puzzle Box plansFree Puzzle Box plans - This box is based on an old Japanese style of concealing the mechanism that allows the box to open. Rather than just having a simple sliding top, this box also has a concealed locking mechanism that must be dealt with in order to open the box. To open the box, the front strip of cocobolo must be slid to one side, thus allowing the top to slide out freely. This particular box was designed for an assortment of random items, but the theory behind this style can be adopted for a plethora of projects, including jewelry boxes, money banks and so on. To make the box more interesting, three types of wood were used: cherry (for the main panels); cocobolo (for the top and middle strip); birch (for the small corner pieces).
