Welcome to Homemade Puzzles.
I’m Bruce Viney and I live in Washington, in North-East England.
I make puzzles of my own design, and sometimes other puzzles.
It’s strange how many different ways there are to open a simple box...
Why are some plans free?
The simpler plans are free because they’re easier to make;
just about right if you’re starting out making puzzle boxes.
The paid-for plans for the puzzle boxes take longer to get into
a readable form that can be understood, than the time it
takes for me to actually make that box and get it working.
They’re also a little harder to make, because there’s more moves,
or very precise cutting to do, or a lot more pieces involved,
and quite often, all of these.
These puzzle boxes can turn out to be pretty good, and
there is the satisfaction of having made them yourself.
