Very heavy wood, dont know what it is. Could be wattle ?
Again, acquired from the old cabinetmaker friend, and if it was something
he valued enough to keep, it might be something “of quality”. In which case
I havent done it justice.

Don’t like book-matching for lids, so used a leather that
matches some of the lighter-color wood.

Have more of the wood, but no plans to cut it til it’s time for the
saw to be sharpened anyway.
update: the saws went out for sharpening yesterday. “The master”
says he sends them every year about this time. Probably wont
slice the rest up til next November.

Nice work there guys,

Hinges:- Are they clip on/in hinges?... I don’t see any screws?

Saw sharpening; – Don’t forget to consider Peacock Saws, a PU and deliver back service.

-- Regards Rob
