Another Hinge Experiment

I didn’t get any new ideas from my hinge challenge so I came up with this alternate hinge on my own (it’s easier to copy someone else’s ideas). Boxes are scrap wood flooring, splines and back corners are black walnut, finished with BLO and Renissance wax. Not my favorite hinges but they are new to me! (and they work). Comments and alternate hinge methods welcome. (store bought hardware doesn’t count)

I like the boxes and the hinges , but the splines are a little “bulky” and I don’t think they add to the rest of the box.
Just one fools opinion , of course : )
Happy New Year to you and yours !

Looks like a good design to me. It does not look over complited but looks effective.

How about using a pen spring between two dowel rods? Then you wouldnt have to show the dowels. Similar to how a toilet paper holder works.

I like those too. Love the parts you chose to use for the fronts. Worm holes are ok with me.
