"This puzzle was inspired by the antique Japanese hinged puzzle boxes. I repaired a couple of them for other collectors and loved the operation. However, I thought it could be trickier. I kept the concept the same but added some confusing movements. It is rated moderate to difficult. This box is of moderate difficulty, and can be feasibly be used to store items due to its generous internal space. This puzzle was crafted with a variety of foreign exotic and premium domestic wood types. Its construction is sturdy, and it has been designed to last a very long time if not abused." -Eric Fuller
