« Part 10: Mixing another batch of shellac Part 11 of String inlaid box series Part 12: All done... mostly. »

So after several coats of shellac, and lots of time spent doing a bunch of other things, I finally found a few min to grab my camera and take some pictures while installing the hinges.

I have done this several times on this site, so there is not much new and exciting going on…

Mark out the shape of the hinge, small razor saw, knife, chisel and small router plane..


Like a glove!!!


UUUmmmm… opps. Stupid stupid stupid!!!!! Oh well… client wont care. I can fix that easily, just a small shim of maple that I can glue in and plane to the right size, will be noticeable when the lid is opened, but oh well… that’s what I get for not paying attention to what I was doing.

Other than that… looks pretty good to me.


I love how the oil and shellac have made the figure in the maple pop and gives the shell some real texture.

I will get the hardware in the next few days and install it, and will even try to finish the inside so I can finally call this complete.

Thanks again for reading.

Very nice work. Something to be really proud of.

Beautiful, very nice work. I’ve felt the sinking feeling that comes with not paying attention.

Double the width/size of the hinges and the prob is fixed

...or you could install 4 hinges instead of 2.

Both are good suggestions. But hardware and hinges are both installed. I am going to make a matching patch to hide it as best as possible.

Have your say...
