This puzzle is part of the group/set:

"One of my favorite activities is to have a big, stinky cigar after a long day in the shop...generally enjoyed at my local cigar bar, Havana Deluxe. I've been wanting to make a puzzle box that will hold a cigar for some time now. A while back I was talking to the owner about it and we decided that I would make not just one cigar box, but a series of them! Each box will named after one of the people working there. And thus was born the Havana's Puzzle Box series. This is the first box in the series...Havana's Box #1 - "The Chris"...named after the doorman.

The designs will start off fairly easy in difficuty, and get harder over the course of the series. This first box is therefore not super complicated, but it does have a nice 'twist' to it as well as a sophisicated and compact locking mechanism concealed inside. The entire lockworks are contained in the endblocks, measuring 1"x1"x.45". This makes the box nice and compact.

Crafted from solid quartersawn Sapele, this box will be VERY stable. The lid uses a beautiful crossgrained Wenge veneer for that decorative touch. Fit and finish are excellent all the way around.

Each box signed and dated, with 40 copies produced for sale. If you're not a cigar smoker, the box is also perfectly sized to store your secret beef jerky stash. If you enjoy neither cigars nor beef jerky, I don't know what to say to you. Spice up your life. Step out of your comfort zone :)" -Eric Fuller
