I got to the point on this box (and 12 others) where it was time to route out the mortises for the lid stays.... and when I finished doing that... I realized that I routed 'em out on the front of the box, not the back, where the 10mm barrel hinge holes were already drilled out....

After a bit of head scratching....I decided to route out the same on the front of the box, square up the corners and put in some shop made inlay..... and then, still not satisfied, I drilled some 1/8" holes and pounded in some 1/8" round brass stock, sanded 'em down and now it looks like this.... 

 

Oh, and had to route out the mortises for the lid stays, this time in the correct place.....

 

Anyways.... this customer will be in for a surprise when he opens his box.... lol

Ouch! 12 of them? Nice recovery, though.
