My latest attempt…. box joints and a self designed hinge…its probably been done but I think it turned out

ok . I used a dado blade (1/2inch) and a jig(woodhaven 4555 jig) like the incra positioner(just not as fancy)that

can be used on a router or table saw table. Finish is minwax provencial and spray poly..several coats.

my wife claimed the box

Now that’s what I call a heavy duty box (from the massive box joints to the stout hinges). How thick is that wood?

Koog: Nice box and good idea on the hinge. Do you have access to a band saw? If you do, you can resaw your wood and make a more delicate box of thinner wood (and stretch the wood, as well). And you can try another technique on the box. Make the box as a cube and then cut the lid off with the band saw. That provides a neat fit between lid and box and a grain continuation from top to bottom. Doesn’t lend itself well to your hinge design but that provides you with the opportunity to come up with a different hinge. You can use a table saw for these techniques as well but resawing wastes less wood (smaller kerf) on a band saw.

Keep up the good work.

Koog, I get it now. The box is a lot smaller than I thought making the wood look really thick. Keep on with the wooden hinges. They are fun but addictive!
