Made this box for a donation to an auction. It was an opportunity to use the Rob Cosman hinge. I bought his jig. It’s pretty easy once you learn to make the doll rod to the exact size. It’s a simple box. But I love this hinge. Can’t see it when the box is closed. So cool. Made entirely of walnut. Finish is shellac base coat and then general finishes high performance. Thanks guys.

The box is gorgeous. Would you mind posting another picture of the box lid? I think I see a crazy grain structure that will blow my mind. Also, I really should read more. Never heard of Rob Cosman hinges. I tend to do everything the hard way and spend too much time trying to figure it out when someone else has already figured it out for me. Thanks for that tip too.

Thanks for turning me on to that Rob Cosman video—that looks amazing!

I’m intrigued, for sure—and you did a nice job.

I’m with all the other guys on here re: the Rob Cosman hinge – that’s amazing and executed very well on your piece. Thanks for sharing. There is a dowel in the sides and top that align when closed, does that hide a magnet or is it decorative, just curious thanks.

Dowels on the sides are hiding magnets.
