Day 112: combination box
I started work on a new box tonight. This one is intended to have a combination built into the locking mechanism like the pair I laid out back on day 106. As this is still a prototype the cuts aren't the cleanest and I did next to no sanding. The pin and the indexing mark are both copper. The pin has been made but has not been inserted in these images.
Plenty of area to be creative with the combination on this one. It should be fun, I just need to be careful not to make any of the paths too close together or I may weaken the are and cause it to break.
Song of the night:
