Nice Eddy! I really like how you make your own hinges. I’ve got to try that. I like the contrasting wood and the bookmatched top – another technique I want to try (as is the spline – that’s my next project, to build a spline jig). Good job! Are you selling these?

Nice. I like all three.
I’m a wood hinges kind of guy and I really like these.
They are nice and light.

These boxes are extra nice…..I really like the curly maple, the grain is so interesting. I too am a fan of wooden hinges and these look first class.
