Small compartment with lid inside. Lid made of beech – there are a couple of reasons – first, the wooden hinges, second – little suprise on the bottom.16 March 2016 at 7:26 pm #13567916 March 2016 at 7:58 pm #135681ehiseyParticipant
How did you get such nice round pins on the hingelid? I am impressed.
