My wife asked me to make a box to keep things in order with her reeds.
It took a few iterations, so if you need a similar box for that saxophonist in your life…
I started @
These were the settings I used to account for reeds in bags, and loose reeds.
but the hinge is too flimsy on this box, so I made the hinge larger.
And then the dividers were too high, so they needed to be shortened so the lid would open / close.
So I opted to score the saxophones first, then cut the small boxes, then the entire shape while ignoring the engraving and ignoring the two score lines for the first go.
Then flipping the lid and ignoring everything except for the two score lines and the engrave.

Updated, when you put the 2 dividers in, make sure the notches are facing up, and they align with the back of the box, so the lid doesn’t get stuck opening. It gives extra clearance for the box lid.
You can put your reed in there!
