I'm fairly sure PeregrineBF is not Yatto. The "BF" stands for "BrainFuck" which is an esoteric programming language noted for its extreme minimalism, there's still a piece of BF code in his personal title, but he also used to have a longer bit in his signature line. Usually if you run them (there's online interpreters for it, probably linked in the WP article) they output a string of text. I doubt the one in his title does that though (too short). I don't think Yatto would be fascinated by such things, also I'm fairly sure PBF and him were posting at the same times, and PBF's account might even predate Yatto's but I didn't check.

Also the link in the OP talks about using magnets for at least one of the puzzles, which is a good trick too.

“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shaku

I don't care who he is.
I want to know how to get a chunk of wood and a padlock in a wine jug.

Yeah, very impressive.


I think I know the 'trick'. I'll PM you.

You put baby-sized objects inside, and then feed them until they are too large to escape?
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

The bottle with the explanation on it says that the padlock was put in piecemeal and assembled in the bottle.
The wood was obviously put in by several pieces, also.  i would presume he broke the wood along the grain so that, when adhered together, there isn't any sign of  discontinuity.

i imagine he had to use long tools to assemble the lock and apply glue/position the wood.  and to tie the knot...
