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.
As I enjoyed making the hurdy-gurdy, I decided to try the treasure box. I also enjoyed doing this, although there were some very fiddly and delicate bits, but it was worth it, as the finished product is beautiful. So inspired have I been that I have just started the chronograph, which arrived yesterday. I am already wondering what one to do next. I am considering the plane/helicopter, but I will decide when I have finished the chronograph. Thank you for making these models, I find it enjoyable and absorbing, and it certainly helps with dexterity.
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.
