Book of Gears box by hermitchild Book of Gears box by hermitchild
The Thingy I made for :iconxjustinian:'s RFE Ethereal Exhibition for Steampunk City art show.

It's a hollow book box. The ribbon holds it closed. It started out as a stockboard book but I carved out the pages and covered it with paint and paper and gears and stuff. Originally, I had it set up so the gears would move if you turned them, but it damaged the cover so I wired them all down.

I've never made this sort of thing and I had no idea what anyone else was submitting so *anxiety!* but everybody I showed it to liked it and I got offers for the prototype I made for practice, so I sucked it up and sent in the finished one.

It has something in it.

I think the ribbon is a nice touch!

Thanks! My prototype came with its own little latching mechanism, but turned out to be too thin for the locket to fit in. I'll have to use it for something else. I decided to go for the ribbon on this one.
