Dave Rust Box #7

One of the favorites at RPP this year was a cute little box designed by Dave Rust, the 7th in his unnamed series. I should have included a coin for scale, it is only about 3 inches long.

I don't want to spoil this one by saying too much about the solution, only that it is pretty sneaky with a few surprises along the way. He was able to pack a remarkably tiny mechanism in there, which you can see once it is solved. You do need to be a bit careful putting it back together: it may try to pinch your fingers.

This is currently the only copy he has made, but he is planning to make two more copies to enter the design competition with next year. This is great news if you're attending: you can enjoy this great box!
