Here are one or two pictures of the dovetail joints that hold the two inner trays together. It’s years since I did hand-cut dovetails (1962 to be precise – last year of high school!).

I ‘nailed’ the partition with tiny pegs cut from the bog oak, hammered into pre-drilled holes. It seemed to work pretty well.
Just a close up of part of the lid after oiling:
