I really like the wooden hinge described here by Paul (shipwright). I made a stand-alone hinge just for the fun of it. Then I wanted to build something that uses such a hinge. I decided on a good-sized box for my shop to hold wood screws and associated hardware. My previous “system” could get pretty frustrating.
The box is made of ash with cherry for the lid and miter keys. There are 12 compartments in the lower part of the box and a removable tray on top of that. I rounded the edges and corners more than I usually would for a box. Since this box will be used in my shop, I wanted to made it less prone to damage from rough handling.
The overall outside dimensions are about 11” X 18” X 7”. I finished all the parts with Danish oil.
Here are some photos that I took during the build:
