Thanks Chas.

The customers picked it up yesterday and were very pleased with it. It'll be used at their woodland wedding in June

Mark, what you've created there is exactly what I'm looking to make for my brother's wedding! Can you talk me through how you ended up making the pin hinge? I don't quite get it from the thread.

Also, what finish did you use and what wood is that? Looks fantastic. Did you use a lathe to hollow out the bowl area or hand carve?

Cheers!

Hi
I didn't make the pin hinge but salvaged it from an air regulator. Chas' post is the best one explaining this sort of hinge. The wood is yew and it was turned on a lathe bothe the hollowing and top and bottom surfaces.

Search for Pete Maddex's Peel lid bow - which has an interesting hinge and links to a video of how to make it.
I don't know how to link to his post so hence the suggestion that you search for it.
