Hi, thanks for taking a look.
This box is built with Padauk and Maple, the hinges are Oak.
Internal dimensions are ~ 11×8 x 4d
Finish is Minwax tung oil.
When I was initially figuring out how I was going to build this the lid and bottom were going to be flat and and about 3/8” thick. Somewhere along the line I decided I didn’t like the flat recessed lid and I changed it to be ~3/4” thick with the routed edge. I should have made the bottom the same thickness as the top for weight balance.
The box does not tip with the lid fully open but it is close.
I may have to add a small chain to stop the lid opening instead of having the hinges set how wide the lid opens.
I am still learning and experimenting, many thanks to the community here for your support.
