Treasure Box Mechanical Model Kit
The Treasure Box provides a great place to store your jewelry and memorabilia, while providing a fun experience while building and operating it.
The box contains a compartment that can be open and closed with an exquisitely carved key, which is used to set the gears in motion by turning it clockwise. The mechanism gears are visible through the intricate cutouts on the sides and top of the box, giving you a detailed look at the operation.
Number of parts: 190

Notes from Alex:
I just finished putting together our sample for this - it was one of the most enjoyable builds I've done. The quoted time of about three hours is right. The assembly is very straightforward, and as long as you make sure all the gears and rubbing surfaces are well-waxed, should be non-problematic.
Opening/closing the box is a blast - all of the gears and mechanisms interacting is fascinating.
