Default New puzzle box...

I've just finished another little box, called The Knight's Tomb.
It looks like the Medieval Casket, but it a lot easier to make, although just as hard to open...
If you're interested, take a look...

These puzzles are wonderful. Thanks for sharing them. Now, If only I could figure out how to make them.

Hi Nickbee

Just a but in

I made the ball one, it's a fun one to make, the hard part is finding the right size ball...to put in it,,, I used a 7/8" marble...I had in the shop but you may find a plastic/marble one at the craft store that would work just fine,,,I gave the ones I made to the grandkids and they loved it...but I did tell them how to get the ball out YET.. I made two of them one for each...of the kids..

UPDATE
I don't see it listed anymore on his site, but here's his PDF file below
...

Harrysin, yes, I really will have to take some photos during the making of these puzzles. Might help to understand the plans better!
What's the simpler puzzles?
The Flanger-paint it in bright colours; might serve as Christmas gifts....
The Cubey-the simplest of the puzzle boxes; fairly easy to open too.
Ball in Cage-that Bobj has just made. I didn't think of using a big marble, just happened to have a big ball bearing...
The Trinket Box-just an ordinary box; the lid is a bit intricate, but not too bad...
The Ball in Cage is still on the site, but not on the plans page: you can hardly call The Secret, a set of plans!
I've left it in the gallery page, and it's on the solutions page.
It's nice to see someone has actually made one of the puzzles....

I might give the cubey a try one of these days. I have some left over 1/8" ply from my RC airplane days. Thanks!

Dear Bruce, could you possibly let me know how you achieved the three d effect of the knight? Believe it or not I came across your design when looking for ideas for Kub Kars (ie cars made out of wooden blocks by cubs for car races!) Best wishes, Melissa
