Kim, welcome to Lumber Jocks. I like the design of this style of box. What is on the inside? Do both wings spin? What did you use for a pivot? Nice job on the corner splines and the jointed top. Thanks for sharing. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Big Al, Thanks! The inside has the bottom lined with brown suede and yes, both wings spin by a pivot pin in opposite corners. I used a stainless rod as the pins. If you look at the pair or matching swivel lid boxes I posted, you’ll see how they open better and also the diagonal piece inside that lies just underneath the lid separation. And also how there was a little discussion about how to make the lids so they are not removable.
