Lid and handle are loose tenon and mortice construction.

Cut he 1/8 inch mortices in the box and handle with the joint-matic .

Hinge Pins are 1/8” brass rod from Lowe’s. Rods were clipped to length with side cutters and cut flush to box with a razor saw.

Sanded everything smooth to 200.

Box has a few coats of Rustoleum Spray Lacquer.

Tomorrow I will use brown wax and hand rub.
