Simple box with opening lid

I had an occasion to make a box that was easy to open for someone and came up with this. The box is 4" wide x 2" high x 4" deep. I had to sand the corners on the tabs on the lid piece just a tad to fit in the round holes on the sides, but it works great! The box is made with 1/8th inch material and fits together VERY tight so that no glue is needed. Have fun with it! Edit: I added a 6x4x2 box also because it seemed like a good size :wink:

I had done the same but used a hole drilled into the side, and fitted the hole with a bamboo skewer. I also used 1/4 inch wood that made it easier.
