A basic design I was working on for a while, originally designed for 1/8 inch I made it for 1/4 inch Butternut but forgot to adjust the hinges. So I cut the hinges for 1/8 Baltic birch which as plywood was much stronger and tiny they look better and take less room than the bigger would have been.
I also added magnets at the corners for a solid close but not difficult to open. And I added one of the mandalas I have been using as avatars.
I do love those tiny hinges. I need to figure out a need for a box so I can make some Right now I’m just too enamored of using living hinges as spines
This is a single hinge from my extras…
the depth of the notch is 1/4
Beautiful! Those hinges really are something, great work as always.
Wonderful box! I’m intrigued by those hinges. Haven’t tried those yet.
Living hinges have a more limited lifespan. Even the side hinges have to be pretty large to stand up to abuse but these can be from 5 to 50 with increasing strength and durability. I use the bamboo skewers as strong hinge centers.
Boxes.py makes a nice starter hinge but they can be modified to good effect.
Thx for the inspiration again the box turned out great and love them hinges.
That’s lovely wood. So warm and buttery looking!
What a rich looking wood! And what nice hinges… I like your box (and all the work you have shared) very much!
Very nice box! Lovely wood.
