I made this Jewelry box for my wife not long after we got married. Had a little fun with the band saw and sander to make this. It sure is not your typical box. I wanted to go for a simple look and one that was able to fit on top of the dresser.

The only thing is, now i have to make an entertainment center for her soon.

Hope you enjoy.

Nice looking box. I like the swing lid design.

Keep it up.

I love these boxes and especially the swivel lids. I have been looking in catalogs for this kind of hinge but can’t seem to find them.. What are they called?

Thank you!!

The hinge is very simple. I just drilled a small diameter hole, put a plastic washer between the lid and box then just nailed in a brass pin. I left it a little bit loose so that it would swing easily. The Pin shaft was a thin diameter and the head was a little bit bigger so that it would not pull through. Hope this gives some insight on how I did this.

Those swinging lids are really cool, thanks for sharing your technique.
