I think Oliver AKA @Gaffboat should make one like this for show and tell.

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

That is amazing. definitely well beyond my skill level. By comparison there was a relatively simple puzzle box featured in one of woodworking magazines that I thought I might do.

One can only wonder at the complexity of the mechanisms that both lock and unlock this thing.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

And if you think about it, if a thief wanted to steal something from out of the box, they'd take the whole box, and use a hammer on it someplace where they wouldn't be notice.
