The 4 corner waste pieces of sycamore from the EZ Mitre box drove me crazy. I put them in the burn pile, took them out, put them back….. Until I decided to design a box around them and quit worrying about wasting materiel. Box is Jatoba with sycamore splines and 4×4 sycamore panels. Shipwright hinge of sycamore (1/4” thick). Tung Oil Finish and wax. Dimensions: 12×7x4 1/2”. Sycamore makes good materiel for these hinges as it doesn’t tend to tear out and it’s stringy texture makes it stronger than I would think.
