Double the challenge. Build your own enigma puzzle box. Then try to solve it!
The difficulty rating for assembly 3/5 to solve the puzzle box 2/5 on the NKD-Puzzle scale. Suitable for age 14+

The finished puzzle box you will build has 5 movements to open it that involve turning gears that then cause other things to turn. It has many separate mechanisms and has a slot in the top like a money box. The puzzle box is not hugely difficult to open but just watching the interaction of cogs and wheels turning to make the box open is somehow a very satisfying movement. You’ll be tempted to open close open close again just to watch it all happening.

The box is called MiniPunk and the poplar wood exterior has a great steampunk like look about it.  If you’re thinking Christmas already it will make a nice gift for teenagers and adults alike. They’ll build a box that is both a safe way to store your money or secrets and a fun puzzling enigma to solve.

The puzzle box comes in kit form, ready to be assembled, with everything included that you need to assemble the puzzle box including the glue.
The kit is precisely laser cut at the NKD workshop at “La Distillerie” of Lodève in Southern France from top quality Poplar plywood that it’s a 100% eco-responsible.

The kit contains:
> 48 pre-cut pieces
> assembly instructions
> glue
> sandpaper
> wax

Size of the completed puzzle box: 75mm x 80mm x 90mm The useable space inside is about 50mm x 50mm x 45mm.
Packaged in a laser cut and engraved brown card box which is beautifully presented for gift giving.
Full assembly instructions in both English and French come inside the box. The solution sheet with steps to open the Mini Punk puzzle box also comes with the puzzle.

    Twice the Fun

    I was blown away by this little box. It comes in kit form including everything you need, right down to glue and sandpaper, and is beautifully packaged.
    The build is great fun and surprisingly doesn’t spoil the 5 step solution to get your riches out. I made it over a few evenings, taking my time not to put glue where it doesn’t belong. It’s no problem because the instructions are so thorough.
    As a puzzle it is fairly easy but just to deduce and see the interactions of cams, levers, and gears is wonderful.
    I gave it to my niece as a present and she loves being the only person to be able to open her money box.
    Fantastic, and miles better than any diy puzzleboxes found elsewhere on the interweb. Christo
