More practice with 45* corners and differnt lids. The first ones are braclet boxs of Maple and Walnut. This was some of the first corner decoration I did. I like the fact that it makes the corner stronger.
The third pic is my first hinged box. I use the flipping story stick for the hinges to lay them out on the router table and it worked great. The box is purple heart and birds eye maple. It was built to fit a witmans sampler per the wifes request.
Fourth pic is a paded slide top box I made quite a while back for some blown glass stuff. I padded the inside with velvet cloth over cardboard and hot glued it in place.
Last two are my first try at pin hinges. Also first try at putting some shape to the base of the box. I like how it turned out but not happy with the way the purple heart finished in either of the boxs I used it in.
