Description

The latest cipher wheel from Cryptic Woodworks features English plain text with numbers 1-4 and two cipher texts, constellations and English, for creating a wide variety of codes and ciphers. The addition of numbers in the plain text allows the code creator to create numeric shifts in their ciphers or even symbol rotations. The constellations are similar to those from Stargate and let the creator build more unique looking codes sure to baffle would be code crackers. These make wonderful conversation pieces, desk accessories or additions to a gaming collection. Escape Room creators will also like them.


Just a few of the codes you can create are : shift, multi index, keyword, numeric shift, numeric keyword, numeric rotation. I have videos of using these different techniques available on my Youtube site (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOnWOiDfGR8KpReI8VIIEbQ) The possibilities are limited by only your imagination.

Each cipher wheel is made from veneered plywood (for longevity) with a hardwood walnut edging. The letters are CNC carved and are quite deep. I cut the letters and constellations with a stencil mask in place so only the letters are exposed. I can then paint the letters, remove the mask and reveal a crisp image. The constellations were all hand drawn by me. The edging is finished with Danish oil to enhance it's grain. All the pieces are then given several coats of wipe on polyurethane help them look great and last a long time. Before assembly, the rotating rings are waxed so they turn easily. The rotating wheel is held in place via a bolt with a Loctite compound that can be removed if adjustments are needed and reassembled.

Each wheel is 10 1/4" across the flat areas, 11 inches across the tips and about 1 1/2" thick.
