As much as I try my photos won’t turn as I think it’s because I’m loading them from iPhone so I do apologise. This is the first box I made for a friend made from dark oak and ash

The box looks great.

I had the same problem downloading from my iPhone and I found out that if I rotate the picture all the way around in edit they download in the right position. Doesn’t make since but it worked.

I’m really blown away by the wooden hinges (and the whole project). I’m not sure ‘box’ does this justice. In there a wooden pin/dowel inside the hinge?

Yes there is a 3mm dowel made from beech we use this as it seems to work the best
Thanks for the kind words
