The puzzle pictured is made of 1/8" plywood for the inner box and 1/8" Cherry for the outer faces. The entire box was finished with a coat of clear lacquer.
This is a very Chinese-looking puzzle box, with dragon icons on the
end tiles, dragon pictures on the front and back and Chinese numerals
from 1 to 5 on the lid tiles. The lid tiles have to be moved in a
certain order, that doesn’t follow the numbers, to release the end
tiles. These have to be moved three times each to release the sliding
lid. The box has a false bottom, that can only be removed when the lid
is off. The end tiles have to be moved again to free this false bottom,
to reveal a secret compartment big enough to hold unfolded banknotes.
Not too hard to make. Size of the box is 3-3/14” high by 4” wide by 8” long and is made from 1/8" wood and plywood.
This BH puzzle kit has alignment pegs built into the parts to make assembly easier and virtually every part in the kit is labeled.
