Merlin's Casket

This is a very nice looking "casket type" box, and one of my favorites, with decorative strips all around it. There are fourteen sliding panels around this box, and by moving eleven of these panels, it takes twelve moves to open the lid. There is a secret drawer, hidden in the base, and it takes five more moves of the outer sliding panels to release that drawer. This box takes about four square feet of plywood and when complete weighs almost a pound an a half. There are 152 pieces that make up this kit, and when complete, is a large box. This box is made from 1/8" birch plywood.
