Impossible Puzzles

By Benno de Grote

Hi! Have you ever heard of puzzle boxes before? Well, basically a puzzle box is a box with a build in locking mechanism. The difference with most boxes is that you won't need a key to open the box. The only thing you'll need is some brain power. To open the box you'll have to move, turn, shake, twist, slide, push or pull parts of the box in a specific order. A puzzle box might be open after two steps, but it could also take over a hundred!

Sounds great, doesn't it! But where do I get a puzzle box? Most boxes on the internet will cost about 200 euro, and you'll probably don't understand the mechanism. That's why I made this website. I would like to learn you how to make your own puzzle box.

I've been designing and making puzzle boxes since I was 9 years old. They are a part of my life. Instead of keeping these designs for myself, I decided to share them with the rest of the world! Why would you buy a puzzle box if you can make one yourself!

You can use them as a gift or present for friends or you could just make them for fun. You could even put a ring in it... although there would be a chance your partner would never find out about your wedding plans.
