    "Cryptex"

    I made this "Cryptex" or vault protected by a combination lock from the plans by Donald Horgan published in the Summer 2007 issue of ScrollSaw Woodworking and Crafts magazine.
    Involved using a scrollsaw, drill press, lathe and router.
    Made one each for my 4 grandkids using thier names as combination to the "Cryptex".
    As always comments and or suggestions welcome.
    Thanks for looking.

    What a great job, Les. Your grandkids will be thrilled.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Plans

    Been thinking of building one of these for awhile.

    Where can I get the plans?

    I have a laser so marking could be real fancy.

    I know a woman who said her father used to make those.
    We were discussing them shortly after the movie The DaVinci Code came out.
    Yes, please let us know where plans can be purchased.
    BTW, well done and, again 'nifty'.

    Very cool! I'm not a kid and I'd love one!
    Go ahead and run clown, with those big floppy shoes, you won't get far.
