THIS IS ANOTHER BOX VERY SIMILAR TO THE ONE I DID EARLIER http://lumberjocks.com/projects/32242
MY WIFE’S FRIEND JUST GOT MARRIED SO SHE ASKED ME TO MAKE ANOTHER BOX SINCE THE FIIRST WAS A BIG HIT. I THINK MY CURVING IS A LITTLE BETTER THERE ISN’T AS MANY BURN MARKS AND IT LOOKS A LITTLE CLEANER TO ME. WOOD USED BIRCH AND CHINESSE ELM ON THE SIDE AND THE VERTICAL STRIP. 2 COATS OF NATURAL DANISH OIL FOR THE FINISH. ANY COMMENTS OR CRITICS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED SINCE I’M STILL VERY MUCH A BEHINNER. CAN ANY SHOW A POST ON HOW TO MAKE WOODEN HINGES. I LIKE TO INCORPATE THEM IN MY NEXT BOX.

Sweet. That is really nice.

Stewart has a nice way of doing wooden hinges.

Goppetto.

How is working with that Chinese Elm? It’s considered a noxious weed/tree around here and I heard its kind of brittle. What do you think of it, and would you use it again? I’ve never worked with it.

But a nice looking project you made there.

Stippled background is very well done, and it makes your carving stand out.

richard yes, its another term according to wikipedia. i really like it so far. it was just a cut down tree that a family member was using to lean a fence in the right direction. i thought i try milling it down and it wasn’t to bad. if i can get more id use it i think id use any thing at this point im a wood scronger. im constantly on the look out for any tree or wood that’s being dimissed.

I did a “Search” within Lumberjocks on Wooden Hinges.

Here is a post the covers how to make small wooden hinges. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/36519

If you do a search you will get more results for hinges of all sizes and kinds. The “search” is close to the top of the page.
