This is where you need to decide how you want to open your box.
I mentioned at the outset about some of the different boxes I have made and how they hinge differently from one another. All are good, but you may have a preference in style or it may be your ability that decides for you.
The pin hinge is what we will mainly be focusing on and was used on this box.
Chapter 10 will discuss this style.
The Deco box uses a standard brass butt hinge with a stop strap. ( The Deco box has a comepletely different type of lid as you can see but was included because it has butt hinges.)
You could also use a butt hinge with built in stops, they cost about $30 a pair.
Or you could use barrel hinges like I did on the Secret box, they run about $16 a pair.
Chapter 11 will cover this style.
Or you can just make a lift off lid like I used for the Designer boxes.
I am not going to cover this style at this time.
