Jason, thanks so much for sharing this, what a great idea, and the results of you work are really something to be proud of!
The hinges are WAY cool, did you use a wooden dowel or a steel pin for the hinge?
I was going to ask you what kind of router jig you used, but I figured I'd get stuff thown at me
So.......... handcut dovetails, pins or tails first?
how do you find the BLO dries? I used it once on a few turnings and liked it, but off the lathe, I find that it takes weeks to dry, maybe the stuff I bought was old?
Keep them coming, I very much enjoy this type of post!
