Another good looking box, Boky. Problems with hinges because of soft wood or just because hinges are always a pain?

Pine and simple is good, the box looks great and hinges are always a pain….they are just a case of practice practice practice.

I seem to be using less and less hinges for my boxes lately.

Hey Boky, maybe you should check out some of the wooden hinges some of the LJ”s use. It might be something you could try for your boxes. Or, even the brass pin hinge might work for you. It’s a thought..

I am not from USA and it is hard to find good hinges. A brass pin hinge is very hard to find and the are very expensive. I’ll try wooden hinges.

It looks good and well made even without the hinges. Great work!
