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.
