This is by far my favorite puzzle box we have come up with for escape rooms yet.
This box is a unique design born from the Mag Lock Box and just waiting to find a home in your room escape game.
Each box can come with the Butterfly design shown in the product image, one of the custom images from our Signature Series, any of the images found on our other Puzzles/Ciphers or an image of your own. All at no additional cost.
The top panel is removable not only allowing you to change the combination whenever you want, but also allowing you to slip in different covers!
The box measures 8.5 x 6.6 x 4.5 on the outside.
Visible wood is solid mahogany and maple each with a fine lacquer finish.
It is strikingly heavy at 4.3 lbs because as noted, we made this box to last and withstand even within the rigors of an Escape Room Environment. No box will withstand the unreasonable force of someone determined to open it with excess force, but this one comes close…
The box will come with four mahogany pieces with an embedded magnet. If these are placed on the correct positions on the top of the box then the drawer can be opened. There are 492 possible combinations, so it’s difficult but not crazily so.
You can select the combination of numbers, letters, or symbols that you want to open the box. Note that nothing should be repeated on the top.
You can also change this combination later on by removing a few screws and rearranging internal magnets in the box. As an option you can order the box with five magnets required to open the box.
This increases the degree of difficulty to 792 possible combinations. With the drawer open you have an internal area to hold an item that measures 2.5 x 5.7 x .7 inches. From all appearances, there are no more challenges to the box. BUT, there is…. there is a hidden drawer.
If you take the drawer completely out and look inside the opening of the box, you will see a switch. Yet when you move it nothing happens…. Here’s the secret; the right side mahogany panel of the box will slide forward and can be removed.
You will see a recess and a handle. If the internal switch is moved to the left, when you pull on the handle a drawer will open! This drawer has an arched configuration , but will fit a square object of 4 x 3.5 x .7” deep or up to a 5 inch long object if the object width is only about 1.5 inches.
The design and craftsmanship for this box is primarily the work of our own Robert Justiana. It combines skilled hand working, CNC router work and laser work. Copyright 2018 Creative Crafthouse.
A lot of our puzzles can be customized with different images, text, symbols and codes.

Please select "Yes" to customization and Email me the code.
All Magnet Mazes require a code from you, the other puzzles will have a standard code used if a custom code is not selected.

There is not an additional charge for a custom code on Magnet Mazes. There is a small fee for customizing the puzzles.
It is very important to relay codes for mazes and any custom information to me at the time of your order.
I cannot get started until knowing exactly what you want. If I do not have this information it will increase the amount of time it takes for you to have the puzzle in your hands.
If you would like to add images or more extensive customization please contact me prior to placing your order so we can work out the details.
I can also create custom one off props to fit in with the exact needs of your room. If you have an idea please do not hesitate to contact me. We may just be able to bring it to life.

A: This is a tricky one as it really depends upon what you order. Some puzzles (such as mazes) take longer to make than a cipher wheel or lobby puzzle. Often times I can have an order ready to ship within 5 business days. Other factors such as custom requests/engraving will increase lead time.

A: The address shown in Folcroft, PA is an International Shipping Hub. From there your puzzles will be redirected to you. The confirmation Email sent after placing your order contains another link with more detailed shipping/tracking information.
