This work was designed for an exhibition with the theme, “Karakuri Experiments”.
The motif of this work is not experimental equipment, but my own experiments and challenges.
The structure of this work was originally inspired by the "Top Box" presented by Mr. Kamei in 1983.
It is not the puzzle itself, but a part of the structure that I improved on in my own way to create a new mechanism. Of course, the way to open the box is different.
The structure is made using traditional woodworking techniques, which required a great deal of dimensional precision to make it work reliably as a trick.
This is a member of my TWIN series, but it requires very few steps, so even beginners can enjoy it.
