Well done brother, well done.
Your designs are excellent and your work is always top notch.
Man oh man, that's a serious piece of artwork right there.
Not stop hinges.
Hi Robert, I have in fact made boxes with a lip. Most of those did not have hinges, they we lift off lids and the lip holds the lid in place. I have seen the soft close effect on hinged lids and I like it a lot, in fact David Barron has a terrific Youtube video on constucting and fitting this type of lid.
The hinges I use most often are from Horton Brasses, High quality, reasonably priced, and they come in several different finishes. I've included a link below to the hinges I use most, $14 per pair with the brass screws included (a steel screw is not included like Brusso does). Horton calls them "clock and small box hinges"
I really dig the leather accents.
That Cherry is going to look even better after it darkens.
Love, Love, Love this piece.
Great job Scott!
How to make an arcade box from a potato chip, wow that board was twisted.
Great job as always Sean.
That may be the longest glue-up in history, you've got the patience of a monk.
It really paid off though, terrific piece.
Man, that Maple is CURLEY. So beautiful.
I love box making for the very reason that it helps to improve so many aspects of joinery. You can practice new techniques and work with woods you may not use a lot in traditional furniture.
Good work on this one, I hope you do make more in the future.
I love the fact that you used casting resin to actually cast something rather than just color it.
Lee, This is a really wonderfull piece. Great Job!
Wow, Sean, those look great.
This piece turned out great.
That's a very lovely piece.
Oh, you know, it's just a little scrap wood project I put together.
It's just beautiful. I also kinda like the no talk video production too.
Wow, it sure does look like a lot cozier place to be.
This piece is great. Those tapered legs are just right.
This piece is something to really be proud of. I really like the final version of the top.
