I always enjoy people's threads about boxes. I don't know why they are so intriguing. This is a hinged box for earrings. There is a sliding upper piece the rests inside but that will come later. This one is walnut for the top and bottom with cherry for the sides. This is a little different for me in that the bottom has a function other than just closing off or supporting the box.
A template out of some scrap and a bowl bit.

A gooseneck scraper help clean up the relieved inside of the top. This is mostly just to reduce weight. One of those Milwaukee bits off of Amazon for pennies on the dollar handles the top profile.

Same router bit and a different template make the dividers in the bottom. A slot bit and a beaded cove profile the bottom piece so that things lock together. The top and bottom are floating panels.

Once you have things glued up and splined, take a cut that almost separates the top and bottom. Then use a razor knife or a gent's saw to finish the separation. Once they are apart I use a flush saw to clean up.
