Thanks guys, yes I am always happy with five coats of Danish oil finished with 0000 wire wool lubed with wax polish. The inside only had two coats and wasn't polished.
Bj., I had intended to show the fitting of the hinges, a job that I hated for many years, but the day that I fitted them the rain was pelting down and my camera was in the house. Basically I place the hinges on the lid at a distance that looks ok and screw them in position. I then lay the lid horizontal with packing underneath and mark the position on the box. I hand saw the cut-outs and chisel out the waste. Next time I make a box I shall include fitting the hinges.
