This collection of ideas is intended for everyone who makes wooden boxes, because it shows 27 variants of wooden hinges.

We have created the collection in order to pass on some nice ideas primarily to lovers of DIY wooden boxes, but these hinges may also be installed on various other wooden assemblies such as: cabinet doors, screens, chests… We got the ideas for our models from various magazines and books dealing with woodworking, and we think that the collection includes a vast majority of wooden hinge variants. There are lots of wooden hinges in which, technically speaking, the construction is the same, i.e. the only difference is the appearance of the parts, so one gets the wrong impression that this is another variant. Such hinges haven’t been included in order to avoid hundreds of hinges in the collection that are not essentially different. You can see metal hinges on most wooden boxes today and we have to admit that there are many types - cheap, expensive, decorative, inconspicuous, brass, steel etc., but if you want a box that exudes vintage or rustic appeal, then wooden hinges are a very good choice. It is important to note that if you want to sell the boxes that you make, it always proves the best to be  authentic, i.e. to stand out from the competition. These wooden hinges can enable you to do just that! Basically, we have collected a large number wooden hinge variants, we have drawn them and formed this collection of ideas, and it is up to you to visit our site when you run out of inspiration and choose the wooden hinge that best suits your box. Of course, all you have to do is to put a little effort into making it and to decorate your wooden box in the end!
