Much thanks to those who helped me figure a way to smooth the opening http://lumberjocks.com/topics/176178.

Ended up using sandpaper around a tube.

Not perfect but given that the tissues prevent critical analysis, this will be fine.

Box is pine and the top is myrtlewood. Just a little project for myself. May try this again with the insights I gained.

Nice work!
How opening functions! Are there hinges inside or just thight fit of the lid? Or, there is remuvable bottom?

There is no bottom. The tissue box slides in from the bottom. I cut the sides so the tissue box is a snug fit. I can lift it and the tissue box will stay in place. Then when it is time to replace I just push a bit thru the top opening and the tissue box slides out. Seems to work ok and was simple to make.

These make great projects for gifts and they are good for using up those small pieces of wood that are just too ‘special’ to toss.

Nice work indeed!

Yes that was the case here. The myrtlewood plank I took the top from was a bit warped (and cupped). Loved the color so settled on using a pretty flat section for the top.
