OBG65 Danin & Tom thanks for the input. I'm also thinking about using 4 stop hinges spaced out evenly.

tomp913 Maybe a quadrant hinge? I looked at them and din't see a load rating for the ones I looked at, may be a problem as this is not that small of a lid.

DaninVan You might also want to consider lid stays as well as the hinges. That's gonna hurt if (when?) that lid comes down on someone's hand!

Hinge Recommendation

I'm building a presentation case for a friend that will have an item of sentimental value. The dimensions are 36" L x 11" W x 4"-5" H of 3/4" Mahogany or Cherry. What type of hinge would be appropriate for this project.

Additionally, would it be better to cut the lid from the box or build the lid separately.

Thanks for the assist on this.
