This box was my attempt at half blind dovetails. I really like the sliding top.
This was made out of pallet wood like most of my projects and was surfaced and cut with hand tools. This was also the first project i used my shop built router plane on for the stopped dado’s in the bottom and the sliding top.

My kids have claimed it as their own to store stuff in. My son wants to paint it so i didn’t put my standard BLO and paste wax on it.

Great job and excellent strategy. Getting the kids involved is way more fun than perfect joints don’t you think?
