No idea if this is possible to do using just wood. But, I am looking to make a box with a lid that opens/closes using just wood and the GF. Is that…possible?

Thanks hansepe. Checking it out!
These come to mind.
I played with the lower concept once. Saw no way to make it work without a gap on back that would have to be covered with box liner or something flexible, but nice to have a lid without hardware.
I love these examples. The right one is what I was thinking of. But…I don’t see any way to make it without having a gap in the back to make room for the swinging lid. Any thoughts on that?
As mentioned in post. You could make a flexible box liner (felt, cork, etc) higher than the gap to cover it.
Only solution I could dream up when I was examining the concept. I also put some wax on the tabs if remember right. They were catchy (probably too tight?).
That is a cool hinge. First one like that I have seen. Great design.
And as fast as that another idea forms also LOL.
Red lid (black is hinge tab) inside an extended loop (think of it as outside the box --> pre-groaned comment). Would not look as spiffy but would cover the gap.
From the festi link @hansepi posted. I’ve built them before, very nice.
