Great product but demanding

I bought three of these for jewelry boxes I made as Christmas presents. In the end it was exactly what I needed. My only warning is that, though it's a great product, to see that greatness you’re own game needs to be spot on. There is no margin for error in your mortice or pin placement. My advice is to practice at least once on some scrap before doing the work that counts.

Works great!

Cut mortise with shaper origin. Fit great works as designed. Does have slight room for error (forgiving) between base and lid holes which in nice.

Addendum to my other post

Pics of my Music Box project. I cheated on the install and went with sandwiched 1/4" layers of Leopardwood, all cut to fit instead of the plunge router method. Worked out just fine! Had trouble getting a nice clean STRAIGHT plunge cut with the router! I just cut all the "sandwich" pieces to fit together nice and tight and shaped them to fit the lid stay.

Just what I needed!!

Built a music box/keepsake box (Leopardwood) for my daughter’s wedding, and used this lid stay. Matches beautifully with all the other brass hardware.
