The base of this box is walnut and the lid is purple heart with maple and walnut. The hinge is inset in the lid and the other half is attached to the back of the box. This one turned out pretty cool.

Kim, I like the simplicity of your wooden hinge design. Looks like it will work well. Did you use a stop chain or something on the inside to stop the lid from falling all the way back? What’s with the silver button?

You are doing excellent work and have shown a great deal of variety in the boxes you build. I am sure you will and should be posting more boxes in the future. It would help your readers if you would kindly include more pictures of your wonderful work. Dimensions are also a help since it is often difficult to tell sizes from just a single picture or angle. Keep boxing and keep posting. You really are building interesting boxes that are fun to see.

Thanks you and I will definitely include more information in the future. I gave this box to a young man who was taking wood shop class in high school (which I never got to take!) so it was fun to see him inspect it and figure out that wood hinge. The metal button was really just for fun and to lift the box lid. I didn’t put a chain on this one because the hinge was tight enough and I had rounded over the back edge of it so that it didn’t go all the way back (if I remember correctly) I hope the hinge stays tight over the years :)
