I am relatively new to LJ and have been reviewing some projects and came across the Patron style of boxes. I have a couple of questions concerning these boxes that have the wooden/pinned hinge.
Do you finish the box after final construction or do you complete finishing the lid and bottom and then attach the lid? If after final construction, will the finish cause the pin/dowel to bind?
Is the dowel/pin glued to the hinge portion or to the lid portion?
Perhaps there is a blog/post on LJ where more construction detail is documented.
Thanks very much…..I appreciate your assistance.
-- Take care.....Ed
