In another thread I was building a shadow box and now I'm thinking of using hinges for the back panel instead of using screws to hold it in place.

It’s a little late to change the design and I’ve already used 1/8” plywood for my back panel. Do you think maybe I could glue the hinge on and it would hold?

I remember as a kid seeing an old box similar to what I have that had a cloth hinge and I could probably use that method if the Piano Hinge didn’t work.

Why not just use twist plates that rotate out of the way to open and remove the back panel.

I guess I could do that.

As usual the wife came up with a great idea but a little too late. She thought the panel was going to slide up. I wish she would have said that before I cut the rabbits. :huh:
I may have to make another one now.:laughing:
