I am making a small box for a very special friend to put some of the ashes from her recenltly deceased husband. She really likes the keepsake box that i am posting a picture of here:
I want to make the top so it is somewhat secure ( not locked ) but because it is such a small box (7×5 x 3)
I would prefer not to put a bunch of hardware on it. I thought about a couple of small button magnets mortised into the inside edge of the box to hold the top shut and it would put a “fair” resistance on the top from opening. I also thought about not having the top open and then create a bottom that would need to screw on. I am leaning towards the magnets but am looking for suggestons and opinions on hardware!!!!
