Korean Secret Box

This box is modeled from a souvenir my grandfather brought back from Korea back in the fifties. I was always fascinated with the secret of how the box opened. The box was made of wood and held together with glue but has started to apart so I wanted to capture the secret before its lost forever. The scene on the top of the box is a portrait of the Korean countryside. I assume the volcano shown must be the Halla Shield Volcano south of the Korean Peninsula.  Growing up I always thought the boat shown in the water was a battleship but it's probably just a fishing boat.

Printing Instructions:

If you print in the orientations provided supports will not be required for any of the parts. I printed all the parts with 4 shells and 20% infill.  I would use a brim on the key to keep it stable while printing. There are two versions of the drawer, one with a small handle and one that is spring loaded. I printed all the parts out of PLA with the exception of the spring which was printed out of ABS. The spring is one shell thickness so make sure you have thin walls selected in your slicer. PLA might work for the spring as well but I have not tried it.

After you have all the parts printed see the link below for a video containing the assembly instructions.  Besides the printed parts you will need one piece of 1.75mm filament 5 inches long, a standard pen spring, and some super glue.  The assembly is very easy just make sure you have all the parts in place before you apply the glue.

Here are some Amazon links to the filament I used
