I’ve been fiddlin around with this…. expermenting. Had a few pieces of Oak n Walnut layin round. It needs glued, sanded, and finished still. I used 2 different sized woods on the front, back and sides. I finally got a chance to get the “Router Fence System” from Woodline out that I purchased at the WIA show in Sept. I’m real happy with this product. Hope I’ll have more boxes in my future projects.

WOW! I can’t believe this was 100 days ago…. lol
I finally got round to finishin this box, and this other one with it. it’s been kinda experimental (mental haha)
Thnx for lookin

You make the coolest stuff Roger!! This is an awesome box! You will have to update us when it is finished, as I am sure it will look even more stunning than it already does. Great job!

That’s really nice.

when I saw those woden hinges in wood magazine, I cut out the page and put it in my todo binder. Now seeing your project, I would have to take it out.

Great work

There is just something about a nice wood hinge. Looking good Roger….

I have made a few projects incorporating them and really like the natural feel it adds to work. When you can have a box with a hinge and no metal showing… Well that is just cool in my book….

Just as a heads up I use those small hard wood rounded plugs to cover any metal. Here is the two I did. I don’t know the best way to do them, but I know how I did it. If you want to trade notes let me know.

Love it Roger, the Oak and Walnut is going to look great when you give it the final protective finish. I am looking forward to seeing the finished box. I am always looking for different ideas, this one is now on the ToDo list….......................when I get some time!
