Secret Compartment Box Iii?

author-gravatar DPmakestuff Dec 28, 2015

Here it is!  The third Secret Compartment Box video.  I wasn't sure if I should call it a secret compartment box or a puzzle box, but since a Secret Compartment is going to bring in more views, that's what I went with.


The case and drawer backs are made out of Walnut, the drawer fronts are alternating Paduak and Purpleheart and the splines are Ebony.  The bottom drawer is built upside down and is locked in place by a gravity pin.  When you flip it over, the pin disengages and the drawer is opened "right side up".  The biggest design challenge was coming up with a way of flipping over the entire box without scrambling the contents.  With this design, you can remove the top 4 drawers prior to accessing the lowest drawer.  I would store my loose diamonds and gold bars in the lower drawer so I don't need to worry about anything getting tangled or broken #youtubemoney.
