In this video I demonstrate how to make your own Cryptex. What is a Cryptex? A Cryptex is a puzzle box. All the rings rotate independently of the others to create a different combinations of letters or symbols.
GET UP, GET OUT, AND EXPLORE! You use your phone to walk around catching Pokemon. This was a fun one, I really enjoyed making this Pokeball. The project only took me about an hour to finish.
I really enjoy making these three piece lidded boxes, it’s a great way to use up scrap wood too. I did a some wood piecing on this box, it’s a easy way to add some detail.
I used this template a friend made for me to make this Yin Yang bowl. The bowl is made out of Maple and Walnut it’s 10″ x 1 3/4″ Segmented turning is a great way to create unique patterns, and it really shows off the wood.
I’m almost done with this one, is Maple, Walnut, and Madrone burl.
