I built this box as a raffle prize for a fund raiser for a local land trust. The main body is Jarra, the top frame, feet and middle keys are Padauk, the top panel is sweetgum and the pull and upper/lower keys are purple heart. It’s the first time I’ve attempted integrating the hinge mechanism directly into the lid/body components. It’s basically two holes with a 3/16” brass rod stuck in as the pivot. I left the rod pieces proud of the sides to add a little more interest to the flat sides. I was almost sad to see this one go but it went to a really good cause. The winner of the raffle was very happy with it.
