Copper and Eucalyptus locking box

More mixed media tonight.  I made a similar box earlier this year or late last year.  This one is a little bit bigger and is made from Eucalyptus with copper wire accents.

When the 3 inlays are lined up the box is locked and the lid is secure.

Rotating the box 90 degrees so the 2 inlays are aligned will allow the box to be opened.

The inlay on the lid is actually a pin that goes all the way through.  The pin runs in a groove that was cut into the body in order to secure the lid in position.
