Yeah, that’s nice! :grinning::+1:


#5

Ooo, that’s nifty! Can you share a photo of it open?


#6

Oh, I like that! You could make that front lid clasp with a couple of rare earth magnets and it could be used as a satchel or purse for someone! Very cool!


#7

Love all living hinges!


#8

Scottish Sporran anyone ? :wink:

#11

Lovely! Thanks for the extra pic!


#12

Nice! Now you have me thinking of Forge-made footwear.


#13

How durable are these hinges? I’ve always liked them but feel like they would break after a handful of open/closes.


#14

I think they will put up with a lot of repetition but not much be pull beyond what they can handle

The flexibility is determined by the spacing/length of the cuts. Ply lends itself to this application better than hardwood. I have a piece I cut as a test for my doorbell cover that playing with (flexing) is more fun than a spinner. I can bend it around a penny, and must have several hundred flexes in both directions.
A lot more durable than I anticipated.

And remember: if you only need one direction, you can cut kerfs (deep scores) to get a shallower curve that’s apparently untouched from the outside.
