Al, I like the look of the top. It seems like it would be a pain to sand, but the look is great. Do you find that the box wants to tip backwards as you open a heavy top? The pill box you made is a favorite of mine. You are doing great work. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Nice! Love the top and how you kept all the cuts ‘crisp’.

Thanks, guys. No, Boxguy, the box shows no inclination to tip when the lid is opened. The sides of the box are very substantial and Brazilian cherry is very heavy and dense.
