Beach inspired box from John S.
Our 4th photo submission from customer John Sincerbeaux, featuring our HD-638 quadrant hinges, is a commissioned box for a family of three who's favorite beach is Makena Beach in Maui. The beach is surrounded by lava rock and palm trees. Here are more details from John:
"The box is Koa trimmed in Gaboon Ebony. The corners are inlaid with Ebony as well. Marquetry: Walnut burl, B.E. Maple, Koa, Mapa burl, dyed poplar.
Most of my boxes are curved sided which prevents the use of available jigs for installing quadrant hinges. I use a self made adjustable jig which references the "inside" of the box opposed to the outside."
