Treasure box - build your own working model by UGears
An exquisite Mechanical Puzzle Box for jewellery and notes. The true jewel of Ugears collection of wooden models. The delicate through-carved work of its lid and sides invites you to gain a glimpse into the mystery that the moving gears conceal.
Although only the one who can solve the secrets of the puzzle-box will get to enjoy the treasure of beautiful mechanics in its action. One would imagine that in order to open the box, we’d need a key – and the key is right there, beautifully embedded in the carved lid. All you need to do to take it out is to slightly turn the key clockwise. Although, getting the key is only a part of the puzzle. To set the gears in motion, before taking the key out, you need to unblock the mechanism that lifts the lid by turning the key counter-clockwise.
When all the secrets are revealed and the box is opened, inside you will find a small compartment for jewellery, notes and other small items. You may be sure, your treasures and secrets are safe with the new Ugears Treasure Box.
I loved building this. It was a brillliant experience seeing it all come together and getting to see how it worked, and the end result looks amazing.
The quality is superb, the pieces are precision made and easy to pop out.
The instructions were easy to follow, and it was easy to build.
It was a sheer delight from opening the box and seeing the pieces for the first time, to working the finished model.
I will definitely buy more of these.
My husband has a few of these kits and loves them. He was really pleased to receive another one of these. I highly recommend ugears kits to anyone who enjoys making things but prefers a different type of kit. Please keep making them.
Easy to build although some inexperienced people who don't have practical skills may need a few more guidence instructions.. Overall my 12 year old daughter enjoyed building the juelry box which took her about 2 & a half hours in all & said it was fun to do.
My 17 year old put it together for his birthday. Unfortunately the gears were too stiff to turn so it doesn’t work. He told me the instructions recommend using a wax candle to lubricate pieces as you build. Think a wax candle ought to be in the kit and be told to be used as part of the build process.
