Well crafted piece. I like the subtle contrasts of wood and admire your skill with dovetails – strong yet delicate.
Good job.

Nice stuff, Chris. I’m curious what the hinges are; they look unusual to me.

Kindly,

Lee

Lee,
The hinges are Brusso 95 degree box hinges (Brusso JB101). They do not “latch” open, but the extra 5 degrees keeps them from slamming shut until you are ready to slam it shut.
