This work was designed as a Christmas present for 2009.
There are 4 drawers.The direction of the drawers are all different from each other. Only thevery bottom drawer isn't locked. When you move the drawers in a special way,you will be able to open the drawers in sequence. The goal is to open allthe drawers at the same time. A mechanism called, "prevention ofcountercurrent" was needed to make this work. The device is fitted onlybetween drawers next to each other. Therefore, it is possible to make a workthat has 5, 6 and even more drawers, by piling up the same drawers in thiswork. This work has a similar mechanism to that of RF-22 "Confetto Box".
