We use good-quality hinges, sometimes solid brass, which we've sourced through a variety of second-hand and old-stock purchases. Since the wood is all purchased as drops and mill ends, and we plane it here in our shop before cutting, sanding, and assembling them, each is unique.
At this time we are only making these in Walnut wood, beautiful and dark and heirloom quality. If a suitable purchase presents itself for additional kinds of wood, we're happy to add those to the product line. Easily shipped and a great gift.
