Good design overall. I like the deep purple of the wood. Not sure about the Birch, but the Lacewood looks great. I built a sled to cut miters for lids like yours. It helps with accuracy, Usually. Boxes are a lot of fun to make aren’t they!!
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
