These are very nice , molto bene.You can make a small change to the shape and fit so that they will stop just past 90 degrees and you won’t need the chain. Have a look at these.Ciao

One of my military buddies made wood hinges to put doors on our tents when we were deployed to the Persian Gulf in 2003. They worked great even after the supply chain caught up to us and we could have switched over to metal hinges. Nice work!

Beautiful boxes and very nice hinges. I also like the inlays/splines at the corners but I can’t figure out how you did the vertical part?Stopped grooves on a router table?

great hinges, very nice touch to the project, so you don’t have to use metal.
