Made this for my daughters wedding out of walnut and oak. The finger joints were glued, screwed and plugged with 3/8 brass rod.It was my first attempt at wooden hinges they are a little rough but work.The handles are 5/8 brass. I had the name plate engraved locally and can be removed so the newlyweds can hang it in their baseball themed basement. The card box is just 3/8 plywood box that can be removed so they can fill the chest with memories.

Awesome box itself. Those wooden hinges make it more beautiful and complex.
