This is a thank you gift for some friends in S.Dakota. Box is mesquite with no glue box joints (pinned with 1/8” dowels), dividers and tray are black walnut, finish is BLO and shellac, and the hinges are Shipwright style of mesquite with live edge. It’s going to be hard to part with this one!

Great job. I like the hinges. Are they separate from top and main body and fastened on? I’m gona try some wooden hinges one day when I build something large enough for them.

This box is a perfect example of refined rustic. The hinges are super.

Beautiful craftsmanship.

The hinge, and everything else about this piece, is just so well done.

Very nice, indeed!

Those hinges are great as is the wood. I love the worm holes and live edge.

This is a really great box Andy. The entire combination of hinges, wood and craftsmanship really come together nice. I know what you mean by hating to part with it.

Nice box. I really love the look of wooden hinges, and having done them myself, I can truly appreciate the amount of effort that went into them.

Dewayne, The hinges on this box are separate and attached with TB3 glue. I had a strip of live edge that was waste that I couldn’t throw away so made the hinge from it. Thanks to all for the kind remarks.

That’s a really nice piece, love those hinges. I am big fan of rustic pieces, wood should be admired in all it’s forms. Nature starts the project for us we just finish it.
