For what ever its worth ..... I have figured out a simple way of making the wooden hinges that I have been useing on my last batch of boxes. For those of you that don't have the Incra Positioner. Most every one knows how to make finger joints. I use a shop made jig on my router table, some use it on the table saw. OK Just use 3/8th" thick material,cut a 3/8th" finger joints. I use a total of 5 nuckles (2 on one side ,3 on the other) Fit them so they go togather smoothley. Not real tight. Use a file to now round over the fingers. Go to the table saw set blade hight to 3/16th" Start just behind the finger joints and nibbel away back about 1 1/2" frome the nuckles. Now just round over the rest of the nuckle to match the part you have already done. sand smooth , drill 1/8Th" hole through all the nuckles for the brass rod to fit in.
Now you can shape the hinge to what ever shape suits you. When drilling the holes do use the drill press and a hold down for the hinge. Works very well.
