2 7/8×6 x 9” Lightly figured birds eye maple with Padauk panel and hinges. Wenge bottom.

3 coats of poly, blo and mineral spirits mixture. Practicing my hinges still. A lot to learn about wooden hinges. These went on pretty good. Started with a nicely squared box and that helps.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful design. What did you use for the hinge pins?

Thanks TechTeacher. I use brass rod that I get from a local hardware store that carries the K&M Metals hobby display. They have many diameters in 2 or 3 ft lengths as well as brass tubes and small sheets.

I am most impressed with the hinges, the hinges add some beauty to the box. And unfortunately most won’t see or notice that.

Nice work.

Thanks guys, yes the hinges are about 5/16” at the thickest point, set in 1/8” or so then shaped. I’m looking for some clock chain to add for protection. Lowes didn’t have any with small enough links that would match the box.
