Built this inbetween boxes as kind of a learning mechanism to get a feel for zebra wood. Gave it to my dad for his birthday. He loves it. Thanks for looking!

Very nice box and I am sure your dad will like it. What keeps the top in place?

Great box! I like the uniform shaping on the lid and it looks like you got the grain to wrap around the edges. Very nice.

Thanks fellas,
Greg the bottom of the top is rabbeted all the way around so it drops in slightly, I made it just under snug and kept some notes to see where it is gonna be in the winter time when the humidity drops. I know wood moves but I am starting to be curious on how much and how to prevent it from too much movement.
