Hi Jerry
The box as a trick base,you would pop it in from the bottom and it will snap into place with help of the magnet and the screw, in the slot that holds the base.
The top is free so to speak but it can't come off and when you hand it to someone the 1st thing they try and do is turn the bow to open it.
Looking for the latch and they can spend hours trying to open it.
But you are the only one that knows the trick to open it.
A small card in front of the magnet and the screw in the base and the base drops out, just that quick once you know the trick.

The key is the size of the base it must look like it can't come out,move just a bit but not pop out because the magnet pull it right back in to place (locked in)

Have a good weekend
Bj :)

Thanks Mark
I have one more I'm going to post, it's the same type (magic trick box) but it's a hard one to make because of the super hard 45 deg.cuts to make the corner parts.
But I have come up with a jig to sand the parts to size on a belt sander.
I will post it also.
The parts are cut at a 45 deg. on 2 sides (that's the hard part) ,the parts start out as a walnut stock .250" thick x .750 wide x .750" long then are sanded with 220 paper to make the corner parts. (8 corners total)

Have a good weekend
Bj :)
