This project is a simple, undecorated box to hold my woodburner and pens. The box is cherry and maple with maple hinges. I tried to cut the lid at the junction of the cherry heartwood and sapwood to give a two-tone appearance. The feet were made from scrap of keyed miter feet that I made for another box.

The woodburner is a Colwood Detailer. The knob is an inexpensive brass knob that is too big for the box.

Thanks for looking!

Another nice box. Nice hinges but dowels or just glue will work as well as the screws (and look nicer IMHO).

Appreciate the suggestion, gfadvm. Always trying to reduce non-wooden components. The hinge pins are actually toothpicks cut to length. Felt a little strange using them, but they were the right diameter! :)
