A gift for my nephew. Mostly I wanted to come up with a method for the swiveling lid.

Actually, his middle initial is R too. I wanted ARR! But the letters were just too small.
Robert: yes, maple.

Cool, I like it. Don’t have any pickers in the family but that would make a neat heart shaped box.

Interesting way to make hinge…I normally would just have the wood dowel having a good tight fit… seems to work…... I like your method… more of a Positive long lasting result.
Also, another design feature that could have been done:Hide the Magnets completely by slicing 1/16” slabs off of where magnets would be seen, drill for magnets as you did, THEN glue the 1/16” covers back on! Bingo mystery magnets!(and you would not have worry about the magnets coming loose, which I have had happen)Here, the magnets would not even need epoxy, etc. They are captured in place w/o any possibility of coming off. LOL
I know… Picky, picky, picky… LOLI like your design… I think I will make one for a Grandson…
I don’t have any Picks to play with… could you give us some dimensions… including depth of Pick compartment?
Thank you very much!

nice box. Concerning the hole and the tip of the forstner bit: I like Joe’s idea but would prefer a router bit that can dive into the material. To keep things simple I would use carpet tape to stick the workpiece to the router’s base plate, adjust the depth stop to what I want and give it a slow and gentle push on the workbench. No need for further jigs this way. That of course depends on the size of the hole in your base plate. Simple solution to that problem would probably be to add a thin piece of plywood and cut through it. This way you would have plenty of surface for the tape, no tearout and a hole to easily help you position the piece.
Or you could simply take that piece of ply, put it aginst the fence of your router table, add a stop block, cut through the ply to indicate the position of the hole in your setup and then again stick the workpiece on top. Downside here is that you need a router table with a mechanism that allows you to adjust the height without getting in the way. Like the one I have … Feel free to come over any time :-)
Thanks again for another great project!

Cool pick box. I too have a nephew that plays guitar, perhaps I’ll make him one. Also, to take care of that little hole left by the forstner bit you might want to use a tooth pick as a dowel. It should just blend right in with the maple.

Hi, Steve—interesting stuff. I have a Craftsman 3-wheel bandsaw of roughly the same vintage that my dad bought used in the 1950s; same adjustment lever for the table, name plate looks very similar:
Resaw capacity on this baby is a whopping 3 inches or so (maybe a teensy bit more). But it still works surprisingly well for its age. (A lot like my dad, I suppose :)
My son plays guitar (as do I)—might have to make a couple of those pick boxes…
