This is the second box I finished of five. It has the FishFry inlay on the top and the KickinIt inlay on the bottom. The wood choices were Goncalo Alves and Walnut. As you can tell I need a better method of attaching my hinges and the velvet on the bottom. Any suggestions for that would be appreciated!!!

Very nice. I use a self mortise hinge- sure is a lot easier.

Very well done. I see what you mean about hinges, hope you can find a solution. Maybe a back mounted type.

Nice project and great post. On the velvet install, I always use leather in my box bottoms and install it prior to glueing in the bottom so that the covering goes into the side grooves and is way less hassle that way. This method works very well for me because you only have to cut the covering to the size of the floor and since the edges are now inside the grooves you never have to worry about it peeling up in anyway.
Thanks for sharing Rick….
