Aromatic Cedar jewelry box

I was experimenting with wooden hinges and tried to make an all hinge box. The box corners, lid hinge, end handles and latch are all hinges. Here is what I came up with made out of a aromatic cedar board.

Inside I put a false bottom that can bepressed down and lifted out to have some more compartments under the top ones.

Then under the bottom is a sliding door for a place to stash the cash


I love this concept of using hinges for everything, even where they’re not needed. It makes for a very unique look!

Great idea and wonderful execution as usual, Herb.

this is a work art… WHEW!!!
your hinges intrigue me…
what are the chances that you could do a Show and Tell thread on your hinges and latch???..
