What could be so hard about a box? I’ll tell what, getting the top and bottom to match up. I’m pretty sure I got something out of sequence, but I made the four sides and then sliced it to make a top and a bottom part. I used a lock miter bit to make the corners on the box and once it was set up right, it worked like a charm.
My guess is that either the top or the bottom were not as square as I thought and there was a bit of racking after they were glued on. It’s not excessive, but obvious, a 1/32 to a 1/16 of an inch at most. But I lined it with Spanish Cedar thinking that it might make a nice humidor … that remains to be seen. The main box is walnut with a bit of cherry inlay (that was kinda fun). All in all, it was an educational process and so here it is for your review and inspection.
P.S. Don’t you just hate when those needed adjustments show up after you’ve glued things together?
