I would like to buy some quality hinges for a jewelry box I’m making. I’ve looked at Brusso hinges and some places like Rockler and Woodcraft but I don’t know about the quality. I saw a place that sold extruded brass hinges but I can’t remember where. Got any ideas.

Thanks for your input.

Lee Valley has quite the catelog, both in print (243 pages) and online. Lots of selection. Not sure if it’s competative pricing though.

Hi Cherry Tree Toys would be my recomendation. Good quality and rather inexpensive, I got a 100 5/8X1/2 for around 17.00. Here is a link to the hinge page http://www.cherrytreetoys.com/Hinges_C44.cfm

Walt:

I, too, use Lee Valley whenever possible.

However, I’ve been buying and collecting used and vintage hardware for my projects. There are several dealers in my area that specialize in selling reclaimed hardware. My customers have shown a willingness to pay extra for unique hardware.

For jewelry boxes you can’t beat Brusso. They are the finest hinges made IMO. Their products are made from fully machined brass and steel and have absolutely zero slop or play in them. I have used them for years and have never been disappointed, except in the price – they are expensive!
