I have been wanting to build this box for quite a while now, but I wanted a pin hinge without putting a lift knob on the lid, and without putting a cutout on the sides of the box. My solution was a push style lift. To open the box, just push down on the front of the lid and it opens just enough to use the finger recess, shown in picture three.
The box is made with cherry burl on the lid, and rosewood on the sides. This measures roughly 8×10x4, with a poly finished buffed out with carnuba wax.
