    Rob I would like to see your infamous dowel hinge on the lid. I think it would look great! What's your plan on the right hand side?

    Hey Rob have you ever done tenon's that are cut to the full depth of the mortise and then each tenon has a miter cut on the ends where when they are inserted  into the mortise they miter together. I have also done them with half laps on the ends. Just a thought.

    On the wood hinge top, couldn’t you put a round piece of metal under the vener and a strong magnet on the file holder to hold up the lid, that would keep it from falling down and smashing your fingers when your getting something out from the inside.

    You don't need a full box for the drawers. These are small drawers that won't bear a lot of weight. Just use wooden drawer slides and attach the drawer runners from front to back with a double tenon. It will expand and contract in the same direction as the front.

    Rob, some things to consider,

    1. Over processing - it's one of the 7 wastes of manufacturing.  The box for the drawer is not needed.  All you need is drawer sides aligned to the drawer opening.  They would add enough strength to the case.  You can add the runner after the fact.  Then just route a groove in the side of the drawer to run on the runner.

    2. How are you going to attach the box to the front and back of the case?  Hang it from the top?  The top will move and it won't align with the drawer opening.  You can't just glue it in place. If you use dowels or tenons (even loose ones) you have to do that at the same time you are putting the entire case together.

    3. If you make these boxes, then you will have to notch them out at the top to allow room for the pencil drawer from the side. I'm assuming the depth of the pencil box will be such that it would run into the side of the box or even a drawer runner as I suggest

    How come there is no new episode in 6 days?
