Simple oak keepsake box , solid oak. sides are dadoed into the fronts , slight rounding on the top edgs of the top and bottom. bottom is secured with plugged screws and the feature of the box is the all wood pintle hinges.The router left some burns but they aren’t to awful. The over builder in my forced the use of nails in the addition with dowel plugs. ended up nicely , first project completely designed by myself.

You did a wonderful job on this, your first box. I can see that you put a lot of thought into this project as well as some fun work.
Your design is well executed as is your choice of wood … I’m always a fan of wooden hinges, and yours turned out very well … be proud of this piece.

Nice job.
Where did the term “Pintle Hinges ” come from?

Peter folansbee’s carved boxes served as inspiration , i simply take the term from him. However the physical design ,measurements and the such remain my own.
