Made this as a gift for a special friend.

Walnut, 1/8” thick. The hinge screws are only 1/8” long! getting hold of hinges that small was quite a battle! Finally bought a little gift box from a craft store and pulled the hinges from that.

Was a fun build. I love Walnut.

Nice looking box, I know what you mean about finding small hinges I bought a bunch at HD years ago and I am almost out, of course they don’t have them anymore

Have your say...
