Jesse Foust says:

for hinges I suggest chisel out a notch for it then use some tacky glue and glue the lid to the hinges closed, then open and put your screws. perfect everytime

mike osier says:

What software do you use for templates

Michael Hall says:

Nice project brother. I recently saw something called jig it from Rockler that might come in handy for hinges

nick longstaffe says:

Why didn't u just use a dowel for a hinge?

Gio Penguin says:

For some reason this makes me think "Nuketown".

kaos havoc says:

Could you have used slightly undersized dowels in holes and put the lid on as you glued it up to provide a hidden wooden hinge? Or would that fail too easy? Thinking about trying to make one of these for a friend.

DBFilms86 says:

I like piano hinges for their ability to close up tight and they have a pretty clean look to them. I used them on my work benches I built that fold up flush against my wall to save space.

Victor Baeza says:

why does your bandsaw have an "i like to make stuff" sticker?

China North Airguns says:

Jimmy Diresta has good hinge layout ideas.

Terry Cairns says:

Very clean design.  Nicely done.

TherealCCChasarrived says:

fine craftsmanship however you use at least 5 thousand dollars worth of tools to make it. I could do this with a skill saw, some screws, a drill, 2 hinges and some wood.

Jonathan Vest says:

why did you not just use dowel pin hinges, it would have went with the theme much better.

Robert Jacquin says:

could use dowel pins just glue them to the lid side and add wax to the holes before gluing up. Good project

danteelite says:

Would it have been possible to say, hot-glue all the pieces, then cut and shape them before separating them again? The sides made on bandsaw and drum sander I mean… That way you make 4 pieces in one go. I'm just curious if this could be done to save time and effort

Nice job!
Clean camerawork, great lighting, clear communication.
I know this video is a year old but it just earned you another sub. 🙂
Keep it up. 🙂

Acho Ndukwe says:

Great work and creativity

Zachary Knarr says:

to aid in hinge placement, just use a tiny dab of super glue to hold the hinge in place so you can drill the hole to install. most accurate/easy way ive found
