Thanks to all. I have to admit that I was rather proud of it given the amount of time I had and considering I was starting with rough lumber. For anybody considering it, the key is apparently 200 cubic inches of interior space which supposedly is adequate for about a 200 lb human. My wife did the research and said that was the minimum available and they went up from there. The picture has a finished size of 11.25”Wide x 8”Deep x 6.5” high. The case itself is 10.25”x7”x4” exterior (9.25×6x4 interior for 222 cu. in. but I used cleats to secure the top and bottom so I stole some of the excess). My wife said there was room to spare when they loaded it.

Seems to me that this would be one of those things that would make sense to build a few at a time. A lot of time was spent getting the proper set-up on the Leigh (half-blinds are “fussy”) but once set-up, all the tails could be milled in minutes without changing anything, then flip the jig and do the pins all at once. Same for the routing on the tops and bottoms.
