A few years ago a friend gave me this hinge. It had survived a devastating fire at his church in downtown Akron, Ohio. After looking at it for years hanging on my tool wall, it finally came to me to use the hinge as the lid of a small box. Box 1 is quarter sawn white oak, finished with Okean penetrating oil and wax. Box 2 is cherry, finished with tung oil and wax. Box 1 uses the hinge pin for the hinge, box 2 uses a dowel. I surprised my friend with the boxes at Christmas.
