Last Fall I asked my oldest niece if she would like her uncle to make her card box for the reception. She loved the idea, and so started my 4 month project. I’m a scrollsaw guy, small projects like ornaments and pictures are more my speed. This was definitely a challenge, I had planned on buying large ornate hinges and a fancy metal heart shaped lock to match a fancy hasp. As you see, it ended up ALL wood. I could not find anything to my liking, so after looking at many other fantastic projects on Lumberjocks, seeing wooden hinges and such , I gave it a shot. The hinges have a metal rod inside capped with dowel to conceal the ends. The heart lock and hasp are permanently fixed to the box. To open the box, you carefully slide the brass rod in the hasp hinge out. The side panels are from a Patrick Spielman pattern. The grooms name is pronounced VOY-TA. Hope you like, maybe someone can get some ideas from this for their wedding card box. Scott.
