This is my first attempt at making wood hinges.  I saw some great ideas on this site and decided to give it a try.  The cutting tool in the box is called a K-Lux knife.  Its a tool used to score plexiglas and lexan prior to snapping on the scored line.  I had stored this tool in the bottom of my toolbox for nearly 30 years and decided to give it a better home.

The following types of wood were used:  western red cedar, eastern white pine, southern yellow pine, cherry, and beech.

Design or Plan used: My own design
