I do like wooden hinges and those are lovely. They compliment an equally lovely box.
Well done.

Great boxes Dustin. I love the way the details in the joinery looks on this box. The wooden hinges really add to the beauty. I have a Incra table ordered and can’t wait to make some boxes. Thanks for posting it couldn’t have come at a better time. This just siked me up.

Your boxes look really nice. The Incra system you have looks like it is being put to good use.

Wow, nice one. I’ve never used that Incra system but it sure makes me think about trying it once. Hinges are nice!!

Very attractive box. You are quite handy with that incra jig. I have one but haven’t been able to make beautiful dovetails like yours. Thanks for sharing with us.

Hey Guss, That really turned out nice – love the two-tone hinges….great fit and finish!

I’ve built some of the same from the Incra book and they are always a big hit:
