Hinges for an old chest

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have remade a set of hinges for an old chest belonging to my father. Not much to say other than it was a fun little project. A bit tricky to make it all fit but in the end a pretty nice result.

The rivets are made essentially as nails and assembled from the inside and then riveted cold on the outside.

Stock used: 25x4mm

I like elegant objects. This is one of them. Nice, simple as Beth says and functional in more than one way : they permit opening and closing of the cover, of course,  but they also solidify the chest. And they have a way of complimentting the dovetails. A very good job. Congratulations.

Tubbe,

Nice work. I favor the fully welded hinges over the tuck and roll style, they are both stronger and cleaner looking.

Wow! Looks really cool and authentic, like the design which is perfect with the old chest. It has a very nice vintage appeal. Great job!
