That’s wonderful. Those wood hinges are amazing, way out of my league. Those trays are really great looking.

I like your box too.
Wooden hinges are a feature I like on my boxes, my straps feather into the barrel of the hinge.
I really like the way you have cut the barrel and the straps are very symmetrical too.
Nice work there.
If you are willing to describe your method to cut and sand this design I would really like to learn about it.

Great looking box! I like the dovetailed splines—and love those wood hinges!
