Coworker asked me to make him a box to hold his cowboy action supplies. He wanted it big enough to hold his ammo & pistols and to be able to sit on it between stages. He also did not want handles or standard brass or steel hinges. I used solid pine for the box carcase and walnut for the hinges and hasp. The box measures 20" wide, 13" deep and 14" tall.
Made a humidor lined with Spanish cedar for my son Christmas present. @Dan McLeod used your video post for the home made wood hinge. Thanks, I love how sturdy it is. Just have to mount meter and humidifier.
Built a king size headboard for some friends. Used primed pine for the face frame, thin (5 mm) plywood to fill in the 5 panels and for the back, 3/4" trim mould in the panels, 2"x4"s for the legs and frame, and 3 5/8" crown mould. Here's some pics...
I've had trouble locating the correct sized hinges for some of the boxes I've made in the past. For this one, I made the hinges first and kind of built the box around the hinges. I just wasn't sure how I was going to mount them until the very end. I ended up insetting them 1/8" into the back and gluing them in place.
