This is a small reversible box. Made using yet another different way of making wood hinges.
Dimensions – 56mm cube 5.5mm wall (and therefore hinge) thickness ( 2×2.75mm)
Materials – Quarter sawn Sapele and Sycamore. Ebony. Brass
Adhesives – Viscous CA
Finish – Spray Satin Acrylic
The removable pin, which allows the box to be reversed, is shown in the second photo.
The flattened box, box bottom and removable pin are shown in the 5th photo.
The sixth photo is a teaser showing how the hinges are made. If there is sufficient interest I’ll blog the method.
Of course the two halves of the side/hinges don’t have to be of dissimilar wood. I would think the join line would almost disappear with a dark wood, like sapele, being the only one used.
