This is a small project that I undertook after I had bought a pen turning kit. I could not make the pen until I had a nice place to keep it. Hence this project was born.
But the project started with an image of a ship, stuck in my mind for months; which is prominent on the lid. This is made up of various woods, pine, bloodwood, walnut, and others. The border around the picture is Thuya Burl. All this is inlaid into Mahogany. The lid border is Rosewood.
Moving on to the base, which is made of Mahogany, with Rosewood Corner posts.
In the interiour you can see Parduk and Mahogany, with brown leather for the ties.
I am happy with this project, even with all the mistakes I made. (My friend described me as having 13 lives in order to get this project done). This was a very valuable learning experience. So I present this to the wild wide world, and hope you appreciate this as I do.
PS. I am definitely not a professional photographer.

Sorry for the late reply. Lee Valley had these hinges, and I think you can find them on Rockler as well.
I am curious regarding the source of the hinges. Would you share where you obtained them? I have a small project that could use such a hinge. What is the size of your box? Thanks.
The box is right for storing your pens!
Excellent management of lives. Doesn't hurt to have a few extra on hand. The word "serendipity" comes to mind, lol. Nice job!
