This is a fairly large box made of black walnut. All of the hardware is solid brass that I purchased from Lee Valley in New York. I have mastered making a box with box joints and cutting the lid off the assembled and glued up carcass but attaching the hinges as I did in this project leaves a bit to be desired when it comes to aligning the lid with the case on all four sides. In a soon to be added project to Lumberjocks, I will show a box I am working on now that was a success as a result of a new technique for holding the lid perfect aligned to the case while mortising the case and lid for the hinges and installing the fasteners. And yet to be mastered is attaching hinges that are hidden with only the knuckle showing when the lid is closed, again lid and case aligned on all four sides.
