I wanted to make a little box that had a mechanical-looking lift. The lift actually does nothing but stop the pin-hinged lid from rotating into the box, but I think it is a good look. The box is Hickory and African Cherry and is about 5.5×3.25 inches and finished in spray poly; and the bottom is lined with black velvet See more at:

Nice web site. I like the bonzai box that shows up when you go to boxes.

This box here is very nice. Interesting lift.

Another in your seemingly endless supply of creative lifts. I really like the faux latch lift! Nice little box.

I think I got some of my inspiration for lifts from you. I looked over your projects and remembered seeing how you had done the lift on a few that I later emulated (copied!) on some of my boxes. thanks. Middle school language arts huh. tough act!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
