a little story behind why I make these puzzle boxes.
There is a site called TheHellbound Web that I found
years ago, it has since changed hands and has changed
greatly since then, but that's where I found someone
who was making and selling Hellraiser Puzzle Boxes
one and then started asking around about the guy and
found out he took forever, sometimes over a year to
deliver these boxes and when they were delivered they
were of such bad quality they would fall apart shortly
after receiving them. Well needless to say mine took
over 6 months but I kept pestering him and it finally
got it I opened the box to find the panels were ALREADY
peeling off! The panels were also scratched and what
looked to be sanded in a tryto clean them up. That
was it, $200 down the drain on a piece of crap, and
for a Hellraiser fan like myself that was unthinkable.
then that I vowed that no one should ever have to
buy a piece of crap puzzle box like that EVER again
and thats when I decided to start making them myself
BUT Ihad help from someone who most old timers know,
was someone who made some of the first replicas around
on the internet and he guided me and helped me to
come up with my own way of doing things and I succedded.
Shortly after The Toymaker disappeared.
10/23/2012: The Toymaker disappeared many
years ago, maybe like 10 years ago. He had such an
impact on me I tracked him down, to make sure one
of his own puzzle boxes hadn't gotten him. I found
him and he has since shown his face again on The Hellbound
Web. Welcome Back Toymaker!
my story and I'm sticking to it.
