When I saw this piece of Rosewood I knew that it had to become something special. So I took my time and decided I would try something a little different. I used the method of inserting a medallion that is so wonderfully demonstrated by our fellow LJ Boxmaker Andy .
Then I decided I would “dress it up a bit” and add a pair of “Neat Hinges” from another fellow LJ Boxmaker
Ian .

A beautiful touch if I don’t say so myself ! The installation of the hinges was sooooooooooo smooth and easy! You must be “accurate” but the setup is great. Check out his website.
I added the ‘base” to it to give it a little lift and make it stand out a bit

Hope you like it…......

Awesome looking box. I like the wood choices. They really are very attractive and I like the hinges that you chose for these.

‘OOH, OOH,,OOH, would about cover my reaction! Very nice use of the grain in the Rosewood. The Maple really goes well with it. I did notice the grain doesn’t quite match up on the corner in picture # 4. Just kidding. It was nice to meet you last Sunday and talk wood, etc. I will be interested to see if you decide to do some Art shows in the future. I bet it will take a while to build up inventory with work like this.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Gene…When you created an amazing piece of work with amazing pieces of wood you definitely hit on a winner. The hinges agreeably add that additional class.
