This box is made from some cranky grain cedar and has inlaid wooden hinges that are flush with the rear of the box. I have tried out this hinge design previously and it has the benefit that when assembled, lid and base alignment is virtually guaranteed.
The hinge pieces are 4.5 mm thick and I used the hinge appearance as the overall theme of the box with the corner splines also spaced at 9 mm centres.
The lid insert is quilted Belgian Ash veneer on 5mm ply. All the hinge parts and accents are American Rock maple.The box and removeable tray are lined with green suede leather.
The box measures 340 mm x 250 mm x 100 mm deep. To save you all getting out the calculator, that is about 13.37”x 9.8” x 4” deep.
As always, your critiques are desired and welcome.
