"My latest box is the only box design I have collaborated on since the Stickman #4 (Clutch Tile Box) with Robert Yarger, nearly five years ago. Generally I like to design my own boxes, but when Joel sent this design in for the Coffin Puzzlecraft Competition, I knew it was too good an idea to pass up. We worked together to make the solution a bit more difficult, and the result is something special. To my knowledge no other puzzle box uses the mechanism nor solving methodology that the Beaulid does. This box shares some attributes with the Irmo Puzzle Box. Once solved, the entire mechanism is visible. While most puzzlers like that feature, it makes it difficult to post pictures.

Individually crafted from fine Peruvian Walnut, the construction features finger joints for strength and good looks. Each box is individually signed and dated." -Eric Fuller
