Need Some Help Here

Recommended Posts

I’m making a jewelry box for my granddaughter but I’ve never made one where I profiled the sides. Now I can’t figure out how to install a latch. Any recommendations on type of latch and vendor would be appreciated

Nice work!  Does it really need a latch? Gravity works real well most of the time and it's cheap. :D

I agree. And btw, nice job!

It is a nice box and if you really feel the need to have any kind of catch, I would go with the magnet as mentioned above.

Assuming the inside is square, there are many 'mortised' box locks that fit a pocket cut on the inside face, with just a key hole on the outside. If you want a lock. Otherwise, I vote magnet.
