One of the first jewelry boxes I made. This one for our daughter-in law Lana. Babingga sides and spalted maple top, pull, and splines. This was 3 or 4 years ago. I built a spline jig and box joint jig for the hinges. I used a home made drilling jig for hinges, brass pins in hinges, w? epoxy. lacquer finish and velvet lining. My sweetheart Lynda bought me a freud box joint blade set which got me going on this style of hinges

Nice box, I like making the wooden hinges also – I use the Freud Box Joint Blades and really like the cut. I’m working on a box right now that will have some Cocobolo hinges on it.

Thanks for the good comments, Bill I have made lots of the box joint hinges, but no Cocobolo hinges I will be looking out for your box. The hinges are great as they cost almost nothing, but grey hair when the drilling goes badly.
