    They are a little more subdued than the maple, bubinga and ebony swap box but, came out nicely.

    A figured pecan and birds-eye maple pair with hard maple pulls.

    Liking your curvy organic looking pulls. Nice boxes as well, but the pulls really draw the eye.

    That no-good Rob Lee sells these nice small box hinges as stop hinges or as unrestricted. I use the stop hinges. These 115 mm ones are held with #1 flat head brass screws so weight is a consideration. I want a certain look for the top profile and I need room for joinery so to cut some weight I hog out the underside of the top panel.

    I use the same method when I want to scroll the top.
