Charlie, thanks for weighing in. I can see some boxes benefiting from rusticity, bigger live edge campaign style boxes etc. I think of some of YorkshireStewart’s boxes as a stylistic example. and then there are his insane hinges actually cut into the back and lid, which would only make me dizzy to contemplate and are a wholly different animal.

Some of my ready sets are quite small, and if let into the carcase and lid would only have a bit of knuckle showing, but I am not sure of the best way, and I am pretty sold on there being a stop involved, as I’m not much for chain tethers etc. inside the box unless there’s a tray lift (tacklebox type deal) involved.

More thoughts?

-- "Bordnerizing" perfectly good lumber for over a decade.
