Walnut and maple. Love the color combination. Wanted to make the top part of the hinge a part of the decoration on the box. Top part of hinge is one piece of walnut. Again, simple and clean.

Some craftsmen try to hide the hardware, others choose to celebrate it. You have done the latter, and done it excellently. Great looking job!

Now, those are some smokin’ hinges. The pictures are a little fuzzy though, I’ll give it a 98%. Nice work. I just looked at your other boxes, they are awesome too !

Fantastic looking box designs, the hinges make them more than just a box. it would be interesting to do a how-to blog on your hinge construction. Great work!!

Mike and Bob: Post a blog? Are you nuts? I barely know how to turn this computer on! And you can see I don’t know how to take very good pictures. Actually all I really did was type in “making wooden hinges” and hit search. After looking at about 150 of the 56,000 sites and printing out a few I just started making sawdust. Some of these sites are fantastic! So far I’ve only tried about 8 different types. I’m still working on others. Since most of my boxes and hinges use 1/4” or 3/8” thick wood I’ve been known to practice with a cut off finishing nail as the pivot. When I’m confident I use a 3/32” brass rod. I found them at a model airplane hobby store.But you, and everyone, sure know how to boost an old man’s ego. Thanks all.

Very nice Hawk.Wooden hinges seem to be some kind of grail. You have opend Pandora’s box in order to build your own. (Wow, that sounds kind of Zen like)
Good job, it looks very nice.Steve

Very nice. Thanks for giving me something to aspire to! And thanks for the tip on how to figure out the way the wooden hinges are created.
