Solid walnut and curly maple with spanish cedar liner, finished with about 5-6 coats of Arm-R-Seal and Swilleys wax. Wedding present for my brother-in-law. Lost the keyhole cover when I tried to grind the back end down (shoot off like a bullet somewhere into the abyss). Replaced it with a spare knock down hardware nut that ended up working really well. Haven’t made a bezel for the humidifier and hygrometer as I mistakenly bought a 75% humidifier, the owner likes his at 65% so I going to see if I can swap out the beads first.
I hate quadrant hinges and will avoid them at all costs in the future. It seems odd that you can buy a pretty decent quality quadrant hinge for 6 bucks a pair, but no one sells a stopped butt hinge of decent quality aside from the super expensive Brusso level hinges. I found some cheap stopped butts on ebay but they are pretty flimsy, not sure if they will get used for any nicer projects.
