Cypress Knee boxes for a consignment deal. I posted in forum for some hinge advice but sometimes the simplest is the way to go if you’re pressed for time and need to keep cost down. A swivel with a magnet catch. Used some 1/4 inch hex bolts I already had for the pin. Ground the head down roundish and made the hole with a spade bit that tends to waller out a bit bigger hole than it’s supposed to. Counter sunk the hole to fit the rounded head and bring it into the base so I could cover it. I put a sleeve of heat shrink on the bolt threads to keep them from cutting the hole out bigger as it’s used and it also filled in the hole nicely.
Just enough sanding to take off the rough and chalk measurements but not too much, because I wanted to leave the stalagmite look. Cored it out, flocked the hole and put some felt on the base. Satin Poly. Thanks for looking.
