Took a couple pieces of 3/4” by 3-1/3 wide poplar. Tried out a new to me joint, called a Full Blind Finger Joint, or Mitered Box joint. Once the box had been glued up, two beads wer run all the way around. I then sawed the lid off, splitting the beads. 1/4” plywood panels for the top and bottom panels. Finger joints were done with just a few hand tools. Used the bandsaw to split the lid off. Wound up splitting one of the fingers in the corners. IF you look closely at the opened lid’s corners, you may be able to see what it looked like.

Finish is a coat of the Infamous Witch’s Brew. The top edges of the lid were rounded over, using a block plane.
