Hopefully, I can phrase the question correctly. I made a small jewelry box with the intention of placing the lid and the bottom on top of the box. Then I thought it would look much better with the lids recessed inside of the box. But I have already glued the box together. So I cut a rabbet inside of the box with my router table. Then I said to myself, how are you going to cut the lids to fit inside of that? So I traced the inside with a pencil and "freehanded" the lid. It did not work out very well. So then I said, I will ask the woodworking guys on the web. The first one I tried "freehanding" left small gaps around the edges, didn't like that. There has to be a simple way that I am completely overlooking which will allow a nice fit. I have several already glued together before anyone says to do it before the glue up. Thoughts?
