This box had been made in the last 2 weeks. It was a nice project. I made some pictures and put these together in a slide-show. This way you can see how I made this box.

Clean lines and a beautiful veneer! How do you like those barrel hinges for small boxes?

Nice Rick. The veneer is just beautiful. I’m wondering about the hinges too and I like the divider pattern

Really nice slide show. The photos and commentary were very clear and instructive. The music was soothing. I enjoyed it very much. It really gave a sence of the process involved. Beautiful box.

One question – why is it necessary to not cut the top all the way through? Is this to prevent tear out from the table saw blade?

First of all that is the best video slide I have seen to date, good timing and such a wonderful piece of music.
What a nice box, and I also really enjoyed the inside, it was kind of calm and yet exiting.
Beautiful wood and really nice work.
I never heard of that walnut oil, does it also smell nut?
Best thoughts,

The hinges are very nice but you always need rather thick sides and sometimes a narrower side looks better.

Walnut oil smells like …..well…..walnut…...Next month I’m helping the mill to produce more oil so probably i go home with some more oil.

I dont cut through the top in 1 go to keep the lid attached to the bottom. When you cut through at once you are at risk for the top being caught in the blade.
