Box in ash with wooden hinge

A young lady I know asked for a box she could give as a baptism present and left the design to me. A light coloured wood variety seemed right, so I dug out this piece of ash that has some nice colour variations in it. I tried to get away from my usual rustic look, but couldn’t resist following the sweeping curve of the grain pattern for the hinge. The tray dividers will cope with baby’s first tooth etc.

I like the continuous grain, but most of all I like the way you have the bottom hinge plate following the grain. That is superb craftsmanship.

Another beautiful box Stewart. I like the clean design and the wonderful hinges. Ash is one of my favorite woods, with so many different grain variations and color shades. Great work!

Stewart, how is the box joined? Are the corners Rabbeted?

This is another classic! I love the way you contoured the hinge to follow the grain. Does it have a finish on it yet?
