This is my entry in the Baileigh Industrial “build a box” competition at SMC. I see that fellow contestant Bill posted his very beautiful contest entry here on Lumberjocks, so I thought I would also post my entry. My entry is entitled “B cubed” for Baileigh Bit Box, as it is a storage box for my router bits.
Contestants were asked to describe how their box was made, so I created a video on design and construction:
I hope that you can take a few minutes to watch the video. I won’t repeat all of that here, other than to point out a unique feature of this box, the articulated hinges. Due to the curvature of the top, standard hinges would not work. The hidden articulated hinges that I designed allow the top to move upward to clear the back.
