I was compelled to make this box of olive wood. I was lucky enough to get this piece from Calabria Italy. So I made this as a gift for a special day to remember. I used 5 m&m barrel hinges for the first time here. I am not to swift at setting hinges but this wasn’t as bad as first thought. Worth a try. Just an oil rub finish…and a little personalized scroll saw message.
