Bevel Box and Tree of LIfe Box

Postby llwood » Fri Oct 05, 2018 8:56 pm

Yeah I know, nobody needs more little boxes. But I wanted to experiment with a different hinge design. I got really small metal hinges and a really small (2mm) router bit. There are slots cut with the 2mm bit that were just big enough for the wings of the hinges, and the hinge is glued into the slot. Then there's a bevel on the top of the base and the bottom of the lid so that the lid stands up when open. You can see what I mean in the pictures.

Excellent. I really like the way the wavy sides accent the grain in the wood. BTW, what's the wood on the 2 boxes? Thank you.

Both look great Andy, as usual your work is first class :lol:

How big are the boxes because the hinges don't look to be that small, trust me I have some very small brass hinges lol

Oh, I'll bet my hinges are smaller than your hinges! LOL :wink: :lol: :)

The boxes are 4in x 6in. The hinges are the 25mm x 15mm ones shown here (00D30.08)
