Follow up to a previous chess board gift. The pieces are from Lee Valley. First try at barrel hinges and got a little over aggressive with the chamferring but learned from the experience.

Real nice looking box. I have never tried barrel hinges as of yet, but I hear that they are pretty hard to install. Yours look like you did good on them.
