As the title says, brand new and only one month old.

From Eric's description:

Several years ago Robert Yarger and I threw around the idea of collaborating on a massive project. We both were interested in making a complex Apothecary style box with many drawers and a sequential discovery style solution. He threw out a crazy idea - why don't we get a bunch of other puzzlemakers to chip in, and have each drawer unique? Having been in the military I knew what that meant (massive disorganization) and so I politely declined, thinking he was getting all pie-in-the-sky on me. Well darn if he didn't rally the troops, and off they got started. I think someone told me they initially thought it would take something like six months.

Three years later it was almost done! Unfortunately one person had to withdraw from the project, and Dave Cooper relentlessly lobbied for my participation. I agreed and now I'm very glad I did (thanks Dave, 'ol pal!) The project is almost finished, and it's shaping up to be an unparalleled success. Twelve puzzlemakers have each contributed a unique box to the project, and Robert Yarger (aka Stickman) is constructing the chest which will contain them all. The chest itself is a massive puzzle, and releasing one drawer will provide clues / tools for the next drawer. Limited to one copy per participant, plus a couple to be sold to cover expenses for Robert, this will be one for the books indeed.

The "Topless Box" is my contribution to the project. I originally was only going to make enough for the submission, but got pretty excited about the design once it was finished, and decided to make it a larger run. I've seen a fair number of boxes and this one has what I believe are some unique characteristics. Unfortunately I can't show much detail of the inside of the box without giving away the workings. I can say that the box has two lids, and neither a top nor a bottom. Figuring out how to deal with that conundrum will hopefully get you on your way...

These boxes are constructed from a plank of very nice striped sapelle which gives a ton of shimmer. They are designed with longevity in mind, and should function fine regardless of humidity. I'm VERY happy with how they came out.
