Beech 5” * 8” 4 1/2” tall, maple wooden hinges, we have all done it and my mistake in glue up was not discovered until far too late. I call it a second.

I only saw it because you tipped us off. I still like it and it doesn’t really make it “unusable” .

Nice, I don’t really see anything wrong, a hard study and you’d have to be looking hard for it but I’m guessing hinge placement? If it is then Meaded most anything is never to late on glue up, if it is the hinges then it is repairable, get a hobby heat gun of 400 degree or hotter and heat that glue up, the hinges will come right off with a little help from a metal scraper and without any damage to the box or the hinges, if there are dowels involved then they would most likely have to be drilled out.

Great Job Meaded!!Give it a Arty name, like “Celebration of the Essence of the Totality of Imperfectness”... You’ll be able to get three or four times as much for it! :)

don’t call it a “second”, name it “Where’s Waldo”

Ok, now you will have to march at the back of the parade. Where’s Waldo is a spiffy idea!I think it’s a ‘design change’ during construction.I really like the box, and IMHO the wooden hinges sets this piece apart from the mob.
About 2 years ago as I was getting ready to move, I took all the box parts that were ‘flaws’ and glued them up and called them “Friday” boxes in honor of the auto industry … They sold rather well … (The show was held in the old Leeds GM plant in Kansas City) ... Who woulda known?
Lee Iacoca took thousands of ford falcon frames and other parts that were destined for the scrap pile and made the Mustang

Very very nice box, the hinges are excellent. The lid and the interior of the box make it an awesome build.Excellent job.

Persian flaw. Still beautifully crafted meaded. A ‘mistake’ like that would bug the dayylights out of me too. Any family member or friend would still be delighted to have it. I doubt you’ll even have trouble selling it. Thanks for sharing.
