Here is another box influenced by Andys Palm Box. I love this design and they are not hard to make at all. I said in my last posting i was making another box, well this is it. I fill this one turned out better as the lid and hinge was concern. I love the look of the colors of the wood. I took a picture of both boxes i made. Thanks for the comments on the last one.

These look great! Andy’s influence spreads…

I’ve got a bunch of scraps laying around and really want to make a few of these. What are you using for the hinge pins?

Hey live4ever i used a brass rod that Andy said in his tutorial. I bought the brass rod at lowes i drilled the hole in the wood, drill it in deep enough so you can tap it in about a quarter of an inch then i super glue a dowel to keep it from comming out. Thats how i did it.
