I just finished this Series 7 box for a gentleman in Texas. I am happy with the results.

Your wood and grain placement choices are excellent, Mark —

Plus, the SS hardware set against the darker wood — really “Pops”, and sez durability and beauty.

Best,

Great looking box Mark!
I love that you concealed the hinge leaves.
How were you able to do this?

To the Great And Powerful Thorhammer!!!!

Stop Day Dream'm and GET IT DONE!!!   And Mark Mayo is just the right guy for your project.

We have been enjoying the Scotch & Fishy Glass box he custom made for me.   Check out his handi work!!!!

    https://alantani.com/index.php?topic=19070.0

Enjoyed so much, that I couldn't keep THE (Ron Jones) MAN off the scotch or glasses. In Fact, RON??  I never found the Jim Beam Black after our last Morro Bay Trip!!!!

Well worth the few shillings Mark charges for his valuable time & woodsmith work.

Also, I'm looking for my next bottle of eastern North Carolina BBQ sauce!  Got any recommendations?Huh?

That's a shame, Wayne. I enjoy it often. I also have recently discovered that Ron Bacardi is selling his Black rum again, what a Mai Tai!
When it comes to most libations, Black is better.

Super job !

You route tricky hinge mortises. I say tricky as you need the move the entire box past the router bit. It always works, but there is a pucker factor.
