Little wooden box

I made this little box as a bit of a distraction this week. I wanted to test some hinge designs again and although this has been done by lots of other people I haven't tried it before. The circular disk in the hinge allows the lid to rotate around a point, not in the centre of the material, and once stood upright the lid rests on the back wall of the box. This style could be used to stop it rotating all the way back on to itself. It didn't quite fulfil all the things I wanted from it but it gave me some new ideas about what to do next. ( svg here )
