Fine Woodworking online has a box-making video workshop. The box Matt Kenney makes has a floating top. He does so by routing slots (with a 1/8” bit) near the top on the inside faces of the box sides as well as slots around the edges of the top. He also separates the box from the lid by table-sawing just under the thickness of the sides and then separating with a hand saw.

If you’re not a subscriber to FWW online, sign up for their 14 day free trial so you can watch the series. Though Matt is a little bit of a handtool freak and enjoys “challenges,” the box-making workshop should definitely answer your questions.
