The UGears Antique Box is a perfect gift for a creative engineer in your life or perhaps for yourself. This brain teaser comes as an all-inclusive kit, so construction can begin right away. No glue or tools are required to complete the project; simply separate the carefully pre-cut shapes from their plywood sheets and follow the instructions for hours of fun. Once the kit has been fully assembled, the lovely carved box can be used to store all sorts of treasures.
UGears specializes in uniquely challenging scale models and mechanical sculptures. Each is designed to create a functioning model equipped with dazzling detail and breathtaking elegance. Each piece is pre-cut to fit precisely together and keep its form, so the project can be built just about anywhere. Experienced puzzlers and beginners alike can enjoy piecing together the many delicate pieces in order to create a beautiful and functional sculpture.
Although there are many jewelry and tabletop boxes available, the UGears Antique Box is a unique treasure. It takes about 4 hours for the amateur builder to construct while following the detailed instruction manual or the handy online construction tutorial. Once completed, this box functions as a puzzle box with secret drawers and mechanical marvels that spin and click into place. The box fastens securely to keep precious items from spilling even when the box is turned upside down. Six compartments are readily accessible by unclasping the main latch, while two other compartments are revealed by pressing a secret button. The exterior is covered in delicate scrolling details that make the box a perfect addition to the decor of any room.
Children and adults alike enjoy the sense of accomplishment gained from creating a special art piece. This project is recommended for those aged 14+, but it's great as a family project for clever minds. The pieces pop into place easily, although an occasional smear of candle wax or a brush of sandpaper can make things just a bit smoother. If the pieces pop in with too much difficulty, they can break. No need to fear, though; UGears offers quick and free parts replacement in case of small accidents. The pieces are made of real, eco-friendly wood that has a fresh natural scent. They come pre-cut and carefully packaged, so all you have to do is remove them and being assembly. The resulting box is conveniently sized to fit in one's hand (6.9 in. x 5.5 in. x 3.9 in) but expands to a full extent of 11.0 x 8.7 x 7.9 inches when all the drawers are open. Designed with functionality and the creation of special memories in mind, the UGears Antique Box is a gift to be treasured for many years.
