Johnathan, nice job. I like the fit of the corner splines. The inset for the lift is a nice touch too. You can match the grain on three of your corners if you cut the lengths first and then cut the 45s on the ends. Of course you need to keep them in the same sequence and undercut the 45s. There is an index with this posting that will give you some other possibilities to try should you want to. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Looks nice. I did a two small boxes by stacking small strips to make the sides and wish now I had done splines like this on the corners.
Nice handle on the lid. I am sure you had requests for a few more.

If I had the thickness, which I didnt, I would have resawn it, then if you cut an end and a side from each piece you can match 4 sides.
Unfortunately there doesn’t seem too much demand out there.

It’s a nice clean box. Congratulations.
