A late wedding gift for my daughter and her husband for their wedding. Was made primarily from rough cut walnut that spent the last 20 years is someones attic to prevent them from stepping through the sheet rock when they put the Christmas lights away. Fortunately it was rescued and made it’s way to my shop, where it turned into several boxes and two blanket chests. The panels ar 1/4” walnut ply, with a 1/2” birch ply bottom, and solid walnut top. I used the Rockler torsion hinges. They are nice, and mounted easily. However, they don’t allow the top to quite close completely. It wants to stay open and leave a 1/2” or so gap. Does anyone have an idea of how to fix that problem??
The finish is 2-3 coats of garnet shellac, with another 2-3 coats of clear shellac on top. Thanks for looking.
