I used the product on my hobby projects like jewelry boxes...small doors...
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.
Attractive and functional
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 $$ on quality screws. Other than that perfect
Brusso is the very best
I used these Brusso hinges for a jewelry box I made for my daughter's wedding. I would only use the very best materials and Brusso fits that bill.
They are great on small boxes.
The best hinges
I have used the Brusso hinges both small and large for boxes. Having installed several sets I have learned the proper installation techniques. The hinge mortises must be exact or they will bind and shift the lid. I have had many comments from customers that they love the 95deg. opening. The hinges are extremely strong with no play, yet the screws provided are extremely weak. In hard woods it is best to drill holes to the size of the full diam. of the screw then add super glue gel to strengthen the bond... or buy brass coated steel screws.
I would buy this product again.
A well made quality product. The only suggestion I would make is that it should come with a couple of extra (spare)screws.
Best Small Hinges Available
Recently attended a jewelry box-making class taught by the legendary Frank Klausz. These are the hinges he recommended and used in making his own jewelry box. Although the hinges are pricey, they reflect exquisite German engineering and finish, and are well worth the investment.
Very nice but pricey
If you're making a high quality small box, don't cheap out on the hinges
Installation was very smooth, and they look great.
top quality You get what you pay for $$$
used on a rosewood/Maple jewelry box
Great little hinges
They are solid looking hinges, as they are about 1/8 inch thick on each flange. I use them on decorative boxes by routing an inlet for them on the sides and lid. The 95 degree stop is particulary useful, as it holds the box lid in a open position, and doesn't allow the lid to touch the sides, and possibly cause finish damage
The best hinges I've seen so far
Good hinges, best I can find.
Good hinges, well made, best I have found. More work than surface mounted hinges but worth the trouble.Inletting depth and alignment critical. Screws are weak and are easy to snap, in hard wood substitute steel screws.
expensive, but first class and worth it
[...] High Quality Product
Used for jewelry box. High quality hinge.
A bit pricey, but a nice pair of hinges
I used them on a sapele jewelery box. They looked very nice, but were the smallest mortises I ever cut!
The quality is well worth the price.
Used on Jewelry Boxes. Hinge shows a quality product. The brass screws are hard to use, even after using wax or soap to lubricate the screws on hard wood.
