Here are the types of boxes:
I wanted the lid to be such that one side has the grooves and the other is plain so that it can be slid open and turned to the plain side when little land is not in use. The box will be used to keep the pieces(little land shapes). The dimensions i specified were:
height= 8 inch
thickness=1.5 inches(excluding the 1 inch grooved surface)
grooves on the lid:
space between the grooves=2.5 cms
thichness of groove=4mm
This the second type of box, where again the grooved surface itself forms the lid. can be opened and closed but cannot be detached and changed like the above example.
I asked him to work with the same dimensions.
He said these 2 pieces would be ready in 2 days after which i can make changes or finalize before making several units. I hope everything turns out the way i imagine it or better.
