I had so much fun doing the first box, I started the next two before finishing the first one. So I really can’t which one was the first. Table saw, drill, belt sander and coping saw got most of the work done.

That happens. Get started and wind up making more than you planned. Good job.

Amazing boxes. How have you made them? There are no joints seen anywhere.

Those do look nice are those basically a bandsaw box? How do you get the lip on the lid?

Sharad, to answer your question – I had a piece of oak as thick as the inside of the box is high. I then ripped a piece as wide as the box, then ripped a piece the thickness of the top and bottom. Then rip a thin piece for inner lid. This allowed the grain to the bottom and top match the body. Finish sanding was done with the top and bottom in place.

Djayhawk, no band saw here. After cutting the body of the box to rough size, I marked the top the size and shape of the inside. Drilled thru top to bottom. Then got out the coping saw. Finished the inside with one of them sandy things you put on the drill press. Put the top down on the thin piece (see above) and marked it with an exacto knife. Cut and sanded to the line. Then glued it to the top. I put the top on and sanded it while in place. Ta-da! Or something like that.
