One box for 2012… this is the first time that I play with Teak.. it looks much better than the simple cheap rubber wood that I used in the past. The box is made by dowel joint, a little wood turning, and some mess up on wooden hinge… hu hu

Looks nice. Pretty hard wood.

Thank you all, Teak is quite easy to work with, it is soft, but strong (in the middle class..), the hinges are the most complicate part.. (I though that it is easy, but..) I try to control the smoothness in lid opening.. not too loose, or not too tight….em..not easy.. (including wood expansion in humid environment…). If the dowel rod inside the hinge is too big, the hinge can break easily.. (this time I use 10 mm dowel with 17 mm Teak)..

Have your say...
