I made this to hold Magic: The Gathering trading cards (another hobby of mine, and a huge competitor with woodworking when it comes to allocating ‘spending money’) ... This was made in my dad’s shop using some stuff he had left over from a job. Finished with several coats of brushed on poly. The felt is self-adhesive stuff from Michael’s or similar.
This was my first experience with Soss hinges and I will say they were not the easiest things to install for a beginner. But people that handle the box in-person make positive comments about them, so I guess it was a good choice.
There are also some errors (gaps) with the walnut trim wrapping around the edge. I suppose I could attempt to color-match some putty or epoxy to fill them if it bothers me sometime.
