Puzzle Boxes and Alarm Clocks
I received a puzzle box as a gift a few years ago, and I liked it so much that I’ve been trying to make my own. My word-working skills are fairly rudimentary but luckily my lasercutting skills are top-notch!
This box is about as simple as they come; it’s a modified version of Bruce Viney’s Cubey box that is double the size but still uses 1/8″ plywood.
So I cut the box out, glued it all together, played with it – good times, but as I already have plenty of hidey-holes it was a little purposeless. Last night, however, I realized that with classes starting again I needed a new place to stash my alarm clock to prevent my AM-self from turning it off too quickly and falling back asleep.
It’s a little cruel to early-morning Nick, but that guy’s a jerk.
