Default Latest Recipe Box update

I made a few more recipe boxes.

With the sloping front to the box, I found that when the top is cut off that the lid becomes shorter and the box becomes larger. So I tried the Rob Corson wooden dowel hinge and it does a good job of compensating for the difference as shown on the red cedar boxes.

Very nice Herb,

I like the hinges, never saw those before. I wonder if our generation might be the last to use a recipe box ? Tablets and smart phones have taken over kitchens everywhere. I prefer the old school.

Cheers,
Dan

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
