Nice. Really clean design and execution.
Did you attach the top somehow?

Yes, but not like I wanted. I wanted to route a rabbit around the top & have it set down inside the box, but I was having such a problem with the poplar chunking out, I was afraid of destroying the top, which this was the second top. I ended up just attaching with hinges, but since this was only my second attempt at finger joints, I’m fairly pleased.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I’ve been a little gun shy to post anything after seeing all the beautiful projects on here. So tonight I took a deep breath & broke the ice.
