This was just a fun lil weekend project for a friend. I used Canary, Lace, Wenge’ and Ebony. I have a couple of first’s here, the hinges were a first try I was pleased with them and using box joinery for the corners and then inlayed a thin piece of Wenge’ for an accent.
I lined the inner portion with brown velvet and the finish I used was 4 coats of poly.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Jim,

This is a gorgeous box and your wood combination adds visual interest to it. Nice inlay work too.

Thanks for the post.

Good looking box Jim, I particularly like the wooden hinges. I’ve become a big fan of them and plan on using them frequently in the future.

Thank you all, The hinges were the best part and i find myself wanting to make many more instead of buying metal hinges. But now I need to get creative with them!
