Wood hinges might be nice, but its risky to doom your box to unusability if the hinges were ever to snap.. I’d play it save and get very small, ornate metal hinges or maybe even some black old timey shed door looking hinges.

It looks like once this box is finished, it will really pop, so why add in the Achilles heel? The box looks ~9-12” long or so?

I don’t have much experience with wood hinges, so this is more based off of speculation and opinion..
