Here is a jewelry box I recently finished for my daughters up coming bday. I used PH & birds eye maple for the sides and curly maple for the top.
Brusso 95deg stop hinges were used. This was the 2nd time using this hinge but my first time installing by hand with chisels. IMHO chisels are by far the way to go with this hinge. Faster and mortises that fit exceptionally tight.
For a finish I went with 3 coats of oil/poly followed by 2 thinned coats of spar for a little UV resistance.
