Cigar Puzzle Box Kit #1
Do you have a cigar box that is the same size and type as the one pictured above?
You could turn that empty shell of a cigar box into a cool and fun Puzzle Box with our simple and easy kit.
I put together a little something for Christmas this year for you all. What a great way to while away an hour or two by putting together your own cigar box puzzle while enjoying your favourite holiday imbibe and family revelry.
I have been wanting to make a puzzle kit for some time now and it looks like I came up with something fun and easy to build, and yet there are qualities to this build where you have control over certain design criteria.
The parts are made from Walnut, White Maple, Curly Maple, Mahoghany, Cocobolo and Wenge.
To be totally upfront here, you will need to drill 1 hole in the lid with a 1/4" drill bit at a precise measured point. The rest is just carefull glueing in of parts. Depending on what kind of box you start with, you may need a new exacto knife to cut and clear small sections of the glossy paper from the inside of the box before glueing. A 1/4 sheet of sandpaper is included, however you will have to supply the glue and clamps. If you are supplying a box make sure that it is of the same design style as the one in the picture. Bigger is ok, but smaller won't work.
There were 24 units in this run and one of the parts have been numbered and signed, with 5 kits being made available here on Puzzle Paradise. There will be more kits to follow in the coming year, each will be different from the last.
The raw cigar box to be included the price is $72 CDN plus $20 shipping.
