Because this box is so small and the top of the lid is tapered, I didn’t think my big 6” base router would work well to rout the recesses. So I used a chisel and as you can see in the pictures, that I slipped a few times and removed chunks. I glued them back in but I think it just added to the crappy look.
(Sorry about the out of focus picture)The over sized recesses came from fitting the lid after I cut out for the hinge and found I was slightly off center. In order to save the box, I’m thinking that I should buy another set of hinges that are a little bigger to cover up the over-sized recesses, which means I have to do it all again!
There has got to be a better/easer way!!
1) How does one measure and fit the hinge to line up perfectly on the top as well as the box ( so the lid actually looks like it fits right?
Thank you for your advise.
