Tom, I like the concept in the oak and cherry design. Does the lid fall off easily even with the angled bottom joint? Is the opener just an angled hole or is it a knob? I can’t tell from the picture. These are nice, simple, useful designs. Good ideas. Another idea just for comparison and sharing thoughts. Click. Thanks for sharing. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Tank you for your kind comments. The dimentions are 1 3/4 X 7 1/4 X 1. The opener is just a wooden screw hole plug glued on with CA. I made the lid to fit rather close and I haven,t had any problems with it falling off
