This is really an experiment in another way to attach a top the the box. The joints are critical so it will stay in place and align but won’t get stuck in place. Finished with Malik oil poly blend.

That’s a cool looking box. I like the way you fitted the lid on. Never seen this one before. Great change up.

great idea – thinking outside the box for sure.

I like it but should I copy I might make the walnut corners thinner. as is they seem to over power the box but none the less great concept and execution

btw – I probably will copy your idea

thats a neat way to align a lift-off lid. Not sure if its the angle of the picture or not, but at the walnut pieces different sizes? Either way… I like the experiment!

Definitely a unique way to attach a lid—a great concept!

Seems like there might be a lot of wasted space in the lid section or is it used for something?
