I like making the odd box and will always turn to Ian for the hardware. No-one else goes to so much trouble to produce hinges and locks that have been created specifically for high-quality box making.
His ‘neat hinge’ is a revelation - one of the boxes I made recently went on display at a Wedding reception - there were as many comments about the hinges as there were for the box.
Ian has recently added a new lock to his range and now there's a larger version of the Neat Hinge (shown below).
Clearly it's time I made another box.
Ian makes some absolutely incredible boxes. I greatly respect and like his refusal to compromise. The World needs people like that.
