Beautiful work! I love the vibrant colors. How about making the lid with a darker wood? It would complete the extraordinary workmanship and design of the box. You could even stain the top. Very nice.

I have always wanted to make hinges from timber but always a bit hesitant. I will defer to you on how to make them.

Looking good Ed.
I’m thinking the hinges may be stronger at the pivot if you run the grain in the oppisite direction.
Just a thought…..Good luck on the sale.

Eddy: the pivot pin is Blackwood. One of the blogs showed how I made to pivot pin. I then re-drilled the hinges to the larger hole that fit the pivot.

The blog is here where I made the hinges and the pivot pin.

Super job. I’m intrigued with the hinges – looks like I have some research to do!
