Hi Everybody

Just wanted to say howdy. I'm a mostly retired woodworker on the gulf coast of Alabama. I've also been a builder/finish carpenter till I had a rotator cuff injury about 15 years ago. I've been working with wood for around 35 years now. Still have most of my tools and thinking about maybe setting up a shop, not quite ready to retire full time yet, lol. I don't have too many of my project pics left but I'll see if I can find something to post in the morning.

Thanks for the welcomes guys! I'm pretty excited to be here, getting some energy going towards setting up a workshop again. I've still got my tools packed away in the garage, finding everything might be a problem, lol. OK, I'll try the pic upload again. This is a jewelry box I made for my Mom about 20 years ago. It's mostly red oak and walnut with a poly finish. The hinges are brass rod with the holes filled with 1/8 inch oak dowel. The tray slides and I cornered the inside with velvet. Here goes, I'll try the up load now!

One more pic. I beveled the lid as well as the sides down to the walnut on the bottom. Noticed you couldn't see it too well in the pics I posted before. This one is a little better on detail.

Nice work bell. I like the hinge in the box. Do you have any closer details of that hinge?

Here's a better shot of the hinges. It takes a bit of time, you've got to figure the swing as it opens and I had to do a slight roundover on the back of the lid so it would swing without rubbing. It's basically just brass rods drilled in through the sides and the holes are plugged with an oak dowel. You can see in the last twenty years the dowels have swollen and pushed out a bit. It's my fav jewelry box design, I'll bet I made dozens of these in many sizes.

Thanks bell. So what do you do about the plugs? Do you just trim them or replace them? Never seen or heard of plugs swelling out. Huh!!

I'm going to try to remove them I think. If I trim these I'm afraid the lid might get loose. The filler dowels actually keep the brass hinge rod from moving. They still held up pretty good for quite a while! Wish everything I made held up as well, lol

Actually it amazes me that they moved at all. These were glued in pretty good. The only thing I can figure is maybe the motion of the brass against the inside of the dowel twisted it out over time. I tried pulling them out with a set of forceps but they are still tight.

We live just north of Orange Beach in Elberta. If you look on a map we're right at the top of Wolf Bay. Just Hillary next time you come down this way and we'll take you guys out on our boat.
