I’m making a box using Incra style wooden hinges. In using that hinge, there is a gap of approx 1/4” from the box to the lid when the lid is in the open position. I would like to have the lid stay open at the 90 or 95 position and thought about quadrant hinges. They don’t appear to be a good choice, as the box bottom and lid need to somewhat pivot from each other. I’ve thought of using a chain…any other ideas that might be more attractive? This is one of my better attempts and do not want to cheapen it. Thanks for any help.

Hi Don. I used these for all my little dovetailed chests that you can see in my projects here at LJ’s:

They are very nice hinges – solid brass, about 3/32” thick with stainless steel pins. Lid stays at 95 degrees. Not sure if they’ll work for you. But if they do, I can’t recommend them highly enough.
