I just made my first slab built box with a removable lid. I did the kind where you measure down about an inch and cut around the box, not a design with a lid that just sits on top. My question is, after cutting out the lid, adding a handle, smoothing where the two pieces meet to insure a good fit, but still have smooth edges, etc...how do I go about drying the piece? They are a little less than leather hard. Should I just leave the pieces together so they shrink relative to each other? Do I need to put a hole in either piece even though the place where the lid rests on the box is not airtight?
