Very nice box. I like the inside tray idea. It reminds of something I saw on the Wood Whisperer.

I really like the shelf pins for the tray. Actually, I like all of it

David, This is a very nice box. I bought a package full of barrel hinges but have not used them. Do you have any magic tricks for getting them aligned perfectly? I cannot seem to find a good tutorial and just wondered if you had any tips.

I set up a fence on the drill press tall enough for the box back. Drilled both holes using a witness Mark on the fence that registered the holes center. To drill the lid I band sawed two “cradles” from 3/4 scrap pine to hold the lid upside down and at the same height as the fence. If you leave the lid long and concentrate on the distance between the holes, trim it after.
The pins are brazing rod.
The tray dividers are in V grooves instead of Dado joints or the rounded edge would look sloppy.
The lid inside is a TS cove cut.
The outside curve was made with a TS jig that works like a rocking cradle

David, nice work. This is a beautiful box. It combines several constructions techniques and has some real eye appeal. I use a rubber “bumper” to create space inside the box so the chain doesn’t fall into the tray. I like the tray you made.

I read your answer above about the construction. For a site like this, it would add interest to your post if you also included pictures of the box construction tips. I know it is a pain to stop and take the pictures, but it would be helpful to others. You have used so many great techniques in this project that you could share with others.

Beautiful box made from beautiful wood! Nice job. I too would like to see how it was made.

Cool clean looking box. Well done. Inside pins are a great idea for the tray support.

I have been admiring a box like that since I saw it on youtube. Most of the hardware isnt available here in SA.

Well done David, thanks for sharing.
