First post, but not anywhere near first project. I do lots of small boxes and turnings, and the occasional bigger project. The lid lifts off, with no hinges. This was my first try at using a slab that I cut off a large burl my brother-in-law gave to me. You can see where I filled some voids. I backed the burl with 1/8” walnut since the back of the slab had hatchet marks, and I used a matching piece of walnut for the bottom. Sorry, no inside pictures.
One thing I did on this project for the first time was that the lid is pillowed rather than flat. The center is about a quarter inch higher than the edges.
