These are gorgeous. I'm now thinking of ways to adapt the idea (not the actual exact pattern, mind) of the Disc Box to something 3d-printable.

If that parquet veneer paper was for sale, I'd be buying a stack of it as a Christmas present for my partner right now.

This hits so many things i like; woodworking, craftsmanship, design, puzzly-mystery... I'll be in my bunk (or at my drafting table).

Forwarded to my two favorite woodworkers. One just said that his plane is very sharp and his work is intimidating.

I love puzzle boxes. It was my birthday last weekend and my in-laws had asked what I wanted from Japan and all I could think of were Cheeza crackers. I should have asked for puzzle boxes.

So satisfying! I feel like handling these would be like playing the Room games in real life.

Fascinating building process, absolutely wonderful results! I so wish I could afford to buy a puzzle box.

This nerd-sniped me so wickedly. I've spent four days tinkering with this thing.
