One challenge I see is the size of hinges would have to be limited.

Second, spacer between the lid and the box. That depends on the overall opening of the hinge.

I could see a jig, with a fixed rail that holds the lid, if the lid is deep enough (1/4” or 1/2”), then some floating spacer, then a clamping rail. That might work for one side, but would its size allow to do both at once? Another adjustment?

Oh my, what a challenge. Then again, jewelers might have something that would fit this.
