This is a large box 8 1/2” x 15 1/2” x 4” made of Red Oak and Cherry, the interior is lined with red velvet. I used the finish guide lines from the ‘Box Guy Al’. This was the first time I used the pin type of hinge and I must say it is a easy hinge to install. This was a fun project…...............But then again aren’t they all!!

All comments are appreciated and Thanks for looking!!

Very nice, I like the way you used the wood to show off the grain on the top and front.

Great box Chuck! The lid is cool, the hinge job excellent. I am always trying new hinge ideas and am never 100% satisfied but yours turned out. Did you sculpt the box on the table saw or have you dreamed up something else?

Wow! That raised panel as lid really sets this piece off! Very nice, and very interesting lines/angles.

JumboJack, the table saw blade was tipped to 11 degrees and you see the results. This was a fun project!

Showing off the edge grain and face grain on the lid is a cool touch.
Nice job
