    Hi! If someone could help me out with this I'd appreciate it. I would like to know if it is possible to build a wooden box that can be opened remotely. The door can be located on the side or open from the top. If this can be done fairly reasonably that would be great.

    How remote do you need it?

    My first thoughts are a pully and string system, that will raise the door. Use a simple infrared emitter/detector circuit to trigger the motor that will turn and wind-up the string, opening your door.

    You could be a few yards away when you "trigger" it.
