"An interesting innovation for this puzzle is the fact that it is both a secret opening box and a seven-piece interlocking puzzle. The first challenge is to find the secret drawer. You can then insert something in the drawer and close it all up again without ever having removed a piece, or you can go further and take the puzzle entirely apart into its seven pieces. The most difficult challenge is to then put these seven pieces back together into a camera." -William Waite
