Well, still hot on the trail of the invisible hinge.
The first picture is the back of the box showing the hinge.
I’ve decided since the hinge can’t be made the way I wanted to make it, with a captive invisible hinge on a box with a lip, that I would just embrace that fact and make it a feature. So here is a simple hemlock box that started out as a prototype for some small humidors I’m getting ready to make. I dressed it up a little with some inlay, and made the hinge out of Walnut. I know the lighting is not very good, but hopefully it’s good enough to see.
I grain matched the dowel I used for the hinge, and after flattening up the back of it, the individual hinge pieces are barely noticeable. I’m happy with this result.
