    Tiger Maple Box with Custom Hinges

    Here's another box I finished today. The last one (sycamore and curly cherry) ended up being bought by a friend of mine who also ordered this one. It's pretty straight forward except I redesigned the hinges so that they have a built in stop. I like the way they turned out as they're a bit thinner and less bulky than the last ones I made. I have to build the dividers tomorrow sometime and then it's off to its new home so I thought I'd post some pics yet tonight. Not the best pictures in the world, but you get the idea.

    I opted not to apply any BLO as it would yellow the maple. I shot some water-white lacquer so we'll see how "white" it stays.

    Next project: Moser inspired entertainment center. That should keep me busy for some time.

    Another beautiful example of true craftsmanship... Awesome, and the hinge is simple, yet elegant.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very fine. I need to challenge myself with something like that.

    Nicely done, Jason.

    I have never seen any of your other work, but from what the others are saying, this is par for the course for you? You are indeed an incredible talent.

    Thanks for sharing.
