Durability of wooden hinges. - 10 replies
I’m making a keepsake box for a friend, to store a family bible. I don’t know how much it will be opened, but because of the way I’ve shaped it, there isn’t much room for a typical hinge.

What are some good low profile hindes or maybe a different solution i could use here? Since the lid will be only 3/8” thick where the hinge mounts.

Adding an image to a box lid. - 7 replies
I’m wanting to add an image to a box I’m building. My first thought was to cut out the shape and inlay it, and then wood burn the details in, but that seems kind of amateurish.

Type collectors. - 29 replies
I’m curious how many of you plane buyers/collectors, collect a full set of type #’s? I’ve been toying with the idea. I have types all the way from type 5 up to type 18. I much prefer the types with the big adjuster, i feel it offers more surface area, and just plan feels better. I need to take an inventory and see what types...
