This is a project I built for my oldest son. It is based on plans in a New Yankee Workshop book I bought a few years back. It is home center pine that wasn’t very flat or exactly 3/4” thick as I figured out the hard way. I had a few mortise and tenon joints that had a fairly pronounced reveal as a result that took quite a bit of sanding to fix. It was finished with acrylic gloss.
I installed an anti-slam bracket to accompany the piano hinge. It has been in use for a year now and the lid no longer closes all the way.
