I have not attached it to the box yet to test it, you might be right after all. In the end I wanted to see the box on a stand in real life, maybe as a test for some future project. We shall see, if it doesn’t work, I still have the box and some fun.
I just noticed the studs that’s a very nice touch to the box in fact it was common practice in the 18th century to tack their dovetails. Not everyone did it ofcourse but there is historical evidence of it being done.
