No matter what you build it always turns out beautiful and unique,

Thanks for sharing, and it’s good to see you back on Lumber Jocks.

Hugo…that is a great save and creation for something that would have otherwise ended up in the trash.
I like the wood hinges and latch…very nice

Nice save and good job on the boxes. Your joinery and hinges look very accurate.

You can’t fail with wooden hinges. Colour contrast is beuatiful.
