This was my first attempt at this type of hinge. I was pretty happy with it when I dry fitted them, but when I glued them in place, the one on the right didn’t fully seat. It stuck out maybe 1/16”. I thought “No problem, the clamps will seat it.”, but with the wax paper and caul in place, I didn’t realize that it still didn’t snug down all the way until it was too late. Oh well, live and learn. I’ll know better next time. I’m going to give it to my brother and his wife and they’ll probably never notice unless I tell them.
The box is walnut with maple splines. The lid is curly maple and black palm with walnut splines. The hinges are lacewood with a 1/8” brass rod as the hinge pin. Size is ~14” x 9-3/8” x 5”. Finished with a couple of coats of teak oil, then 3 coats of poly, followed by several coats of wax.
