Box pattern with sliding lid

Hah funny story, I did make a box like that once. It went really well, so well that I forgot I did it.

This is designed for 0.130" BB. You might need to adjust it for your material thickness.

The notches in the top are oversized, you’ll want to play with them if you want them to be totally invisible. You’ll notice that my side rails are not 100% free-floating, I have a tiny bridge on the front side where I don’t cut the material, This is to keep everything aligned until you’ve glued it up. The last step is to manually cut those last bits out, I used a utility knife.
