After allowing the glue to dry… not that the dovetails needed glue… they were tight to begin with…

Here is a few photos of the box after cutting the lid off… using the bandsaw and the Sand Flee to sand the cut surfaces…

IMG_4305 IMG_4306A few little tricks for attaching butterfly hinges…

IMG_4307Use business cards as spacers when clamping the lid to the box and a little daub of Super Glue to hold the hinges in place while you pre-drill the holes… then insert the screws…

Works a treat…

Next post will see the finished box… and its sister… with a few coats of Penetrol penetrating oil…
