    You normally can't change positions because removing the old hinges leaves marks.

    BTW, the Henry Clay purse (leftmost, back row) has the clasp at the top. I don't know how she did this. My guesses are (1) The box came that way or (2) the original hinge was paper and Cathy was able to neatly cut it and put metal hinges on the bottom.

    As Mr. Spock used to say, "Fascinating". (Or as Dr. McCoy might have said, "Dammit, Jim, I'm a cigar smoker, not a cabinet maker".)

    Pre-1983, when I had my next-to-last smoke (I'm hoping to have exactly one more someday, but I'm not sure when), I always felt uneasy about trashing my cedar Royal Jamaica boxes. Now, at last, I know why.

    My compliments to your wife on her creativity and craftsmanship.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    Nope, not a girl thing. I explained in my answer to bluesbassdad. Most have a shelf in them to keep the, uh, private things hidden and secure.
