Love the Butterfly Box! I'm new to all of this so at the risk of showing my ignorance can someone hold my hand on how to attach the hinges to the lid? Are they glued or??
Help please :x
thanks
Cal
If this is in the wrong place please move.

If you go to the second post and view the second picture you will see he used a wooden hinge.

Cal, as Arnell wrote, there are other pages to this thread. If you look at the upper right on the page, you can see "Page 6 of 6" with little white squares around the numbers from 1 to 6. There you can go back to previous pages on the thread and read all the other discussion. Here's a direct link to page 4:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=22383&start=45

On that page, you will find the following:
llwood wrote:... the hinge is a modification of a hinge design posted by Glenn in the Dresser Box thread: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=19336. He uses a steel pin and then replaces it with a bamboo skewer, but we use only the bamboo skewer right from the start. The skewer is inserted through all the hinge pieces. The hinge pieces are glued into the base first, then glued to one wing, then the other. If you haven't seen it, Vectric did a case study on this project, and it shows some more pictures of gluing on the wings and a description. You can see it here: http://www.vectric.com/cool-stuff/case- ... rtman.html


I think that will give you the information you are looking for.
Best,
Andy

Here's another bit of information from page 4:

llwood wrote:...about glue, we didn't use wood glue because it takes too long to set. Instead, when Marty was doing the gluing, he used super glue. Hold it on for 20 seconds and it's secure.

I had to try one also but started with a metal hinge and modified it.

Thanks all

I work about evenly between wood and metal so I just combined them in this project.

I absolutely love these!
I plan on cutting the smaller version.

Raced out to Wood Workers Source, and bought the wood (8/4 and 1/2 Red Oak and 8/4 and 3/4 Padauk).
Got home and determined that I can't cut 8/4 on my Piranha :(
(hind sight is 20/20).

Currently looking to a friend to re-saw the 8/4 pieces, so that they fit on the machine.
I will post pictures when I get a chance to cut these.

I can't cut 8/4 on my Piranha :(

Doesn't it have 3" of Z travel? Or does bit length decrease that to something under 2"?

Yes 3 inches of travel.
8/4 board is almost 2 inches, and the cut required is ~1 3/4, so need 4inch travel at a minimum.
A friend has split the wood for me, so I will be cutting 7/8" and stacking the base pieces.

On page 2 of this thread, I shared two sizes of butterfly box, one smaller and one larger. I'm not sure what revision you are asking for.
