Nice work. When I have messed around with making wood fly boxes I routed out the blanks with a top-following router bit and a simple ply template... one of my refinements as I went along was to leave the blank oversized until after I had routed out the cavity and trim it down after. This allowed me to get thinner walls with less risk of tearout as I routed across the grain. Worked well. Always wanted to find some better hinges though... the kind that snap shut like in some of my store bought boxes. Do you, or anyone, have a source for these, or other good small box hinges?
