so cool man.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

This is a great boat (and puzzle).  Love secret compartments.
That is cool, I like the little space inside. This is going to get snatched for one or two of my grandkids.

That is really beautiful 
Thanks. It is a fun one to build and just as much fun watching people trying to figure out how to open it.
A puzzle box, it would be fun watching the kids. Put something on the inside to make it rattle just a bit, and let them know that it will come out.

Puzzle boxes are really cool…especially for the littles…

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

You sublimating recruits for the puzzle movement C125?

All that's missing are the plans for us dumbcoffs!

If I read it correct, you should make the ends of those port dowels rounded like the removable one.

This could be a perfect project for crowie and his charities...  filled with lollies, could be a great prize.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Way cool Corelz!  I’ll have to keep this one in mind for the grandkids!
The plans might be in that link I sent you a long time ago LBD.

I have trouble remembering what I drank yesterday, let alone what was sent a long time ago.

I posted a couple more puzzles for you LBD
The memory has been refreshed by a cask-o-vino... Actually I bookmarked the site knowing I would inevitably forget it.

I made a few of "his" design, however, I'm always on the lookout for simple shaped puzzles that I can mass produce on the laser.   

Unfortunately I don't have any grand kids to spoil and most of my friends have brats that I just couldn't give a puzzle to, knowing they would just smash it like all their other toys/gifts... great upbringing.

So I try to keep them simple for freebies... however, I do like to make a few more complex ones for immediate friends, and SWMBO when she's speaking to me.

If you or anyone else is interested, this is a link to all the ones I have made, so there are plans/solutions and usually measurements available on my cloud storage.  Most are in SketchUp so they can readily be resized. 
Even though a lot are laser cut out of MDF, most have been plagiarised from solid timber articles/builds.
