I made this for a benefit for one of my assistants sons who is having heart surgery. First time I have used this type of hinge. It is from Rockler. Thanks to all the people on the rockler site who posted their remarks on how to set the hinge, since there is no instruction that come with them. The main box is walnut with maple trays. finish is danish oil then wax. The bottom and the trays are flocked. Thanks to all who have posted boxes, I viewed a lot to decide what I wanted to make.

Very nice!
How did you do the legs? Router work or a piece of trim maybe?

I cut the main mortise for the hinges with a small hand chisel, then the deep mortice for the lid stop will dril and dremel with spiral bit.

The feet were made as one long piece with a roundover bit and then 1 inch core box bit. then cut to length on SCMS and band saw and forstner bit in drill press
