First hinged box. 12 in x 7 in x 4in. Practicing multiple joinery techniques. Box constructed w/ miters and maple splines, inner divider made with box joints and top sliding container made by routing out circle and rectangle. Box made w/ brazilian cherry, curly maple, mahogany, walnut. The hardest part was mortising the piano hinge w/ router. Turn out good for first attempt and learned a lot in the process.

You said “mortising the piano hinge ” was the hardest but I thought you used a CNC for the circle and rectangle. Everything looks great but routing out those two places impressed me. Did you use a jig?

XrayJay – I wish I had a CNC, that is on my dream list of tools. I made a template and routed the inner tray w/ template I made and bowl bit

Your wife will love it! I that you didn’t use a cnc. I think a piece of art like this has more value know that everything was done manually. I know you used a router, but you had to go the extra mile to make the jigs ect… very nicely done
