Geez, If you cut up her kitting needle to make hinge pins, what will you have to store in the chest ? :-))
Nice work on it.

That is a neat little chest. Is that wood buring on the joints or stitching?

That is one of the best looking natural wood boxes i’ve ever seen! & i clicked on it just in time to borrow your hinge technique on two Christmas presents that already have enough problems! -if that is okay -thank you thank you! -running out of time & energy!

I agree with Topamax. Now your wife is going to have to hide her knitting needles.

Love the simplicity of the burned in details. Love the circular grain panel on the gable end. Cool hinges too! I am with Christine on this one. What are the dimensions of the box?

Dimensions are outside 7 1/4 L x 5 1/2 D x 6 3/4 H inside 6 L x 4 3/4 D x 4 D in inches.I meant this to be rustic and use wood burning to dress up joints. I cut it out on the band saw in a few minutes and let it sit for months as I was not too happy with rough look, then decided to finish it for a Christmas gift.

Nice design. I like the vines or sewing stitches climbing over the log.
