I would also say tone it down to 3/8” thickness for the sides. Maybe 1/2 for the lid depending on your design.
May I ask why are you making it a cube? Is it for a specific purpose that it has to be that size? As you can tell from the boxes I’ve made, I never use cubes. There is no better way to loose appeal in my mind. But then if it’s for a special purpose, it may have to be that way?
