Built a large pivot lid box with my scroll saw. Then I was looking at the center of the large box and decided to use it to make a smaller version with a bow out of it. The box is made with a cherry center with rosewood, maple and walnut layers. Someone suggested using magnets for the closure. Thanks for the great idea. I used two 1/8ā€¯magnets and they work great.

Nice work. If you put the magnets opposing and on the far side from your hinge, you won’t need the stop slice. The magnets will hold the lid in perfect alignment.

Nice work. Just a suggestion…if you put the magnets opposing, and on the far side from your hinge, you won’t need the stop slice. The magnets will hold the lid in perfect alignment. More at this site.

What did you use for the pivot?

Keep boxing and keep posting.
