Glass Boxes Finishing Kit, March 19, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Brass tubing is the best hinge material I've found. It's sturdy and easy to solder unto copper foil and makes a beautifully finished look.
Cons
Just remember to put wooden toothpicks in the ends of the tubing before soldering to keep the holes open.
Other Thoughts
Small needle nose pliers work best for bending the insertion rods, as they make nice crisp right angles.
