Made these best I could out of some I had seen similar. Was going to drill them but wound up bandsaw out the centers much better in the long run. Used magnets to draw tops closed in combination with dowels for swinging of the lids

Nice work Randy. I like that oval one the best, is that Mahog?

If you stay straight sided yes a BS, or actually a scroll saw and an Oscillating drum sander would speed things up a lot. Did you sand them with the bottom off, or on? I would think off would also be easiest, make a slightly oversize bottom, glue it up, and flush trim router off the excess.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the feedback just got a scrollsaw and may try that next time. Yes sanded after glue up which is a pain for the inside. Yes Mahogany that one turned out the best
