I started a little box this morning using some yew that was to thin for stool tops, but so nice that it had to be made into something. I tend to just sand Yew as the grain often changes and it tends to tear a bit, so after a spell of sanding.
I cut my components then put the box together dry, after a little more sanding I glued and plugged it .
Now for some wooden hinges I cut out some tapering wedge shapes out of some of the yew offcuts, then marked the hinges for the moving parts cut this away then bored them for the pins . Here's where I got to:)
