Rustin congratulations on breaking so many woodworking no no s on one project.Dont beat yourself up just make a new one the right way.
Many of us have made woodworking mistakes including me.:)

And me. I made a humidor years ago. It was a thing of beauty, with dovetailed corners and Spanish cedar lining. Problem was, I laid the cedar base in without room for expansion and whenever it’s humid enough inside for cigars, that darned base spreads the joints…lol

It sure does look nice dry, but it’s not good for cigars at all.

Short of having a mentor, stuff like that is what’s needed to learn.

Look on the light side. At least you’re not a highway engineer with buckled pavement and miles of backed-up commuters hating you because you didn’t make the expansion joints wide enough.
