Another “wow” piece. What wood did you use? Are those wood pins or screws? Reason for using an “old school” finish? ( I have difficulty with maintenance..LOL)

Beautifully done and I really like your wood hinges.

So that’s what has kept you quiet eh? Delightful box!. You certainly have a style of your own. Great use of found oak. I must have a wander around the Forests of Scunthorpe!

Your boxes are beautifull. But your hinges and latches are simply breathtaking!

That is a beautiful looking box that gives me a very warm and comfortable feeling .
Just love the wood you chose and the inset hasp and hinges are just too fitting .
The wonderful base gives it a floating look.
Just a great style you created .

In your description you say it looks a bit rough but I disagree. I think it has a very finished, in some ways refined look. A really handsome box with some nice touches. The hasp and hinges are great !

That it looks a bit rough makes it all the nicer, imho. Like I always say, if I was into perfection I’d have gone into plastics. That’s a nice box.. I like it! :)

Looks great. I like the rustic wood with a high quality finish (unlike some “rustic” pieces I see that are just rough logs nailed together). And the hinges are phenomenal… the small fingers on yours are great.

I think it looks good “a bit rough.” The proportions are nice and those hinges are a perfect fit, I’d be very pleased to have that in my kitchen!
