    This is a noticeably high quality product and design that sets off the small wooden boxes of expensive exotic hardwoods I design and make in my own shop.

    Comments about Brusso Small Box Hinge 3/4" L x 1/2" W, 2 piece :

    I needed a pair of small hinges for a special box that was a wedding gift. Something for the ages. High quality wood, tiny milling, full through dovetails etc.. The sides were to be 1/4". This hinge will work on 5/16" thickness. So I made the back of the box 5/16" but left the sides at 1/4". This is a precision hinge that will take alot of abuse. Design is classic and works for a variety of styles.

    Great hinges, that look superb. The only issue is the screws that come with are bogus. You would think they would come with better screws given their overall quality. Ive snapped a few on hardwood, so definately drill and tap first or drop few extra $$ on quality screws. Other than that perfect

    I used these Brusso hinges for a jewelry box I made for my daughter's wedding. I would only use the very best materials and Brusso fits that bill.

    Comments about Brusso Small Box Hinge 3/4" L x 1/2" W, 2 piece :

    I have used the Brusso hinges both small and large for boxes. Having installed several sets I have learned the proper installation techniques. The hinge mortises must be exact or they will bind and shift the lid. I have had many comments from customers that they love the 95deg. opening. The hinges are extremely strong with no play, yet the screws provided are extremely weak. In hard woods it is best to drill holes to the size of the full diam. of the screw then add super glue gel to strengthen the bond... or buy brass coated steel screws.

    A well made quality product. The only suggestion I would make is that it should come with a couple of extra (spare)screws.

    Recently attended a jewelry box-making class taught by the legendary Frank Klausz. These are the hinges he recommended and used in making his own jewelry box. Although the hinges are pricey, they reflect exquisite German engineering and finish, and are well worth the investment.
