Skiler, great start. You have mastered lots of skills: dividers, splines, routing, sanding. This is a fine job. It should make a nice gift for your wife. (THE wife seems demeaning.) I don’t know that you will need them but there are some tips on box building listed by topic at the end of this posting if you want to look at them. Keep boxing and keep posting.
