Thanks all. One of the appeals of woodworking for me is problem solving. I was not happy with the damage to around the hardware and really couldn’t fix it with putty or patches effectively. I opted to take an inch off the top and started over. This time I clamped support blocks on each side of the box to reduce the chance of blowing out the sides when drilling for the hardware. In all, I will purchase more expensive hardware next time as it is worth the price in that the installation is much simpler.
