This Art Deco cabinet was designed for a puzzle collector and incorporates several puzzles and hidden details in the construction, it is the second in a growing series of mechanical furniture pieces I have built. There is a 25 piece sliding tile puzzle with a marquetry picture of two birds on some flowering branches in the top. It is hidden by a sliding cover opened with a hidden magnetic key. Next to the puzzle is a secret compartment with a hinged lid that opens by pressing a small button hidden under one of the sliding puzzle pieces. The front doors have a series of 13 randomly placed sliding locks holding them closed. Sliding the correct locks allows each door to be opened with the magnetic key. Overall this was a fun piece to build and I’m looking forward to building more like this in the future.
