Dungeons and Dragons Puzzle Box - The Ultimate Dice Vault!

240 minutes

A puzzle box is a box that can only be opened by solving a puzzle…and a dice vault is a box that holds your dice. We thought it would be awesome to combine the two into the Ultimate Puzzle Box Dice Vault and turn the ‘Vault’ part into something real! This box is made from solid Bocote and it automatically locks when you close it. It doesn’t open unless you know the secret trick, so your dice are protected from those tainted hands that who will do anything to curse your next roll. ???? The silver dragon adorning the box pays homage to our favorite game, Dungeons and Dragons (or Game of Thrones, if you’re so inclined).

There are some amazing Dice Vault designs online and we got super inspired to make one ourselves. We also did a lot of research on how to make a magnetic puzzle box, and here are some of the things we found that helped us out:
