|Kodapup Box at Top|
Making this lid is similar to raising a panel for a door. The center section is first outlined with a shallow cut on the table saw. I have a panel raising jig I made that holds the piece at 15 degrees.

Before I began making the lid I needed to smooth out the fingers on the corners. Remember the box was assembled last week but since we were out of town for a few days I didn't get to that until yesterday. Some would be tempted to hit this with a belt sander but I prefer the polished look a good, sharp plane gives to the end grain instead.
