Nice looking box out of great wood.
How thick is the stock of the box sides if you don’t mind to let me know?

Close to 3/4” woodworm. I wish I had thinned it down a touch more after I started putting it together. I came out a litle chunky looking.

Looks like a great gift to me. Like the contrasting woods.

bigike: fitting the hinges was no problem. had the top and body clamped together for sanding purposes already. The only problem was the original hinges I had came with tiny brass screw which I promptly broke off. Had to go to the larger hinges to cover my sin.
