fantastic. had to look at the pictures more than once to figure it all out. Should be a lot trickier if someone isn’t looking for them!

Great Box Tony, I am amazed on how craftsman like you come up with such great ideas and especially the execution of the project. Perfect box. I really need to get a bandsaw. But mastering the skills you have will take some time.
