Hinge is a routed round groove, the dowels are center drilled with a brass pin 3 are glued to the box and 2 are glued to the lid.

Nice work … the maple is awesome. Good job on the raised panel and hinge!

Was the hinge the Incra hinge kit? Just bought the box joint jig. That jig could be next. Nice box.
