This is the first box I made. It was just for practice. I made it out of spanish cedar and oak. I used polyurathane clear. I leaned a lot on this project. Thanks for looking.

Very well done, you have challenged me to a different way to make boxes.

That is a great first box. The miters and the hinges both look great. It will only get better on the next one.

Nice work. You have the top and bottom inserts down. Looking forward to seeing your next effort. Solid craftsmanship on corners and finish. The first box you craft is often your most memorable. I especially liked your lift tab. Is it inset into the face of the box?
If you are looking for additional complications, you might consider splines and a continuous hinge.

Very nice box… especially for your First one!
Looks super cool!
One thing that can be done, which makes it a little easier… ... is to make the full box as a cube… Finishing the outside also…... then, using a band saw, make the cut that will separate the Top from the Bottom sections.Add the hinges & Finish up the edges & inside…
Something you might think about & try when making another one…
