Wooden Hinged Box

I have previously posted a wooden hinge design where I experimented with the hinge being flush with the rear of the box. This box is made from Tasmanian Blackwood with Jarrah accents and takes that design one step further. The hinge parts have been inlaid into the rear of the box which gives a different effect. A bit of extra work getting the fit correct but the upside is you get perfect alignment between lid and base.
The lid top is made from a Red Mallee burl.
Thanks to all the boxmakers that post on here…..

I love this box. You’ve done a wonderful job on the design and it is so unusual. Congratulations.

First class all the way! The recessed wood hinges really make it unique and the woodwork is a standout.

Genius! Instantly into favorites. The inlay dots are a wonderful touch, and I assume that they span the miter as a key. I repeat, Genius. Thank you so much for posting.

a beutiful box. The hinges are awsome. Great approch to get something new. Been playing with hinges on the out side of the box and thinking about trying to inlay the whole hinge but I really like the way you turned them into an accent.
