In this box I tried with mittered joint in corners. That was a great improvement in order to avoid forced mechanism with impaccient persons :-) (if they guess that is there, is difficult tu pull out the drawer without the mechanism)

Mittered joint need improvement, because a new level of precision is needed. (note the gap in the drawer front)

The mechanism is detailed in the blog

woods are cambará sides and lid center, guatambú (pale yellow) and cancharana (red)

thanks for looking
