We made this box for a lady who wanted something to put her jewelry.
i had some troubles trying to design the hinges and i tried in the pc in sketchup and did not work, then i tried some pen and paper and did not work either, i think i needed more eraser!.

anyway, i saw some boxes that sultanofsawdust had made, and asked him for some advice, he kindly replied and game me some instructions, and there you have it, we got it done and worked perfectly.

She love it and some of her coworkers asked me for some of the same boxes for them.

thanks for reading.

Outstanding box! The one on my ’’must make’’ list. Wood colour is awsome.

Very slick nayo. Some fine details. I like how it operates like a tackle box

thanks!, that would be cedar, but its from the outer part, the one closest to the bark. and the first ones that i tried to make were for my wife’s tools, they are still there unfinished. but now i will have to make a new one for her as this is way better that the unfinished ones.

How did you determine the location for the hinges to attach? Or does it matter all that much?

KelvinGrove, i tried to make make my own measurements, but i failed, , mostly the boxes did not align properly, i had to go by the pattern to make it work.
