There was very little I could find about my before mentioned lambs tongue stopped chamfer. A blog by Christopher Schwarz talked about an ogee terminated chamfer and a google books preview of Garret Hack’s Working with Handplanes showed a picture of a lamb’s tongue stopped chamfer with a discripiton that it is usually made with a chisel and hand tools. After a little practice I came up with a method and took the plunge on the box I am making.
I also made a small relief under the lid.
Now I am trying to decide if I should cut a chamfer on the front and back top edges. Any suggestions?
