Dave, nice work here. It is unusual to see end grain in a top. I like the look. Would you tell us about the process you used to make these tops? Is the inset top joined with a spline cut into both the top and the side? Are you worried about the wood holding together? I don’t like hardware on a box if it can be avoided, but if you must use a metal catch this is a great choice. I like the sliding trays and the varied corner splines; those are nice touches.

Looks like you have been busy. To turn out 8 boxes is no mean feat. Mass production or not, it takes time to fit and install 128 splines. There are also lots of hinges to miter in and lots of trays to make and lots of tops to attach. Way to stick to the task. Keep boxing and keep posting.

These are beautiful boxes Dave. They look a lot like the one I’m building for my sister-in-law. Mine has a raised panel. I agree, the tops are outstanding. Well done, many times over.

They will be treasured for years to come, such a lovely gift made with much love and care by a skilled craftsman..

thanks everyone for all the comments, box guy i just cut a grove and glued them on i hope they don’t move much . Most of the tops are just crotch wood from walnut.
