If you’re assembling construction kits and creating exceptional works, and appreciate the enigma of puzzle boxes, then rest assured that this model kit will definitely satisfy your desire and artistic talent.
Once completed the resulting puzzle box has 9 sliding movements to open it. They may be similar to a Japanese puzzle box in that once you find the first move the next move, and then the next and so on can be slightly predictable. But that doesn’t mean it’s any less enjoyable for not being the hardest puzzle box on the planet! It just means you have more time to appreciate the fine marquetry and admire how the pattern makes the next piece that moves all that much harder to find.
Once the box is open there is a lot of useable space inside to store your valuables or secret documents.
The exterior of the box has genuine marquetry with a distinctive geometric pattern on every side.
The puzzle box comes in kit form, ready to be assembled, with everything included that you need to assemble the puzzle box; even the glue.
The kit contains:
> 144 pre-cut pieces
> assembly instructions
