I started this yesterday afternoon I had to glue all the wood together before I could cut out the box. When I was done glueing it together it looked like a cutting board. Today I went out and cut the box. Because I had no hindges and knew I had some brass rod I desided to design a hindge for the box. This is a first for me and it worked out great but it took some time to figure out how to make it work right. Another project done. I call it the Spider Web Box.
Thanks Dennis

That looks like a complicated build but it turned out very nice. I knew you could do the wooden hinges! Fun huh?

Very amazing look, unique. Have you ever worked with inlays before?
