What an original design. Very very elegant and I love the things imbedded in the lid and the one with the drawer is another great idea. Where did yu get the plan or is it your own? Would love to build one of these for the wife

hi, it is my own design, the top is cut with a dewalt 12 inch power miter saw, i make the top around 1/8 inch longer then cut it with the dewalt, then sand out the saw marks. i use solid brass machined hinges to keep the tolerances close, the key lock works as when locked the right side keeps the left side closed.
