I love it when a good design comes together

I’m sharpening my Autodesk Inventor skills and I made a pattern that allows me to adjust for size and material widths.  Behold!  BOXES:

Of the three boxes, the white oak veneer looks amazing.  The milky white grain pattern is very appealing.

I was happy to see that the hinge and lid work well on the Amber Bamboo wood material:

Reviewing the 3.0 mm blue tint acrylic design and I didn’t feel that there were enough tabs to hold the bottom to the sides so I redesigned it.
