This is a box I made for my niece for her 13th birthday. I got the idea from a video by “the wood whisperer”. I love his videos. He made his boxes with a sliding dovetail lid. Not that brave yet. I made a swivel lid attached with a 5/16” dowel and a hidden lock. It is made of mahogany. She loved it.
