These wooden boxes have sliding tops, and are both about 16 inches long when closed. The larger one is made of 5.5" wood, and the smaller one is made of 3.5" wood. They both have overlap joinery at the corners, and are fastened with pegs. They're both solid poplar, including the pegs and the dowel piece lid pulls.
