Cyrano De Bergerac... the 2 tray drop back box. Making the Lip for the outer case.

With the trays covered I move on to the outer case. Nothing special about this ... but I do like a bit of Lip.

The lip is made from 1mm board and is adhered to the inside edge of the boards at head, tail and fore edge. Only at the head and tail of the spine piece. The components are then covered in the usual way, turn ins etc...

The resulting lip ( bottom image ) here showing the inner tray and space between it and the lip for the outer tray to go into, creates an additional dust trap and helps to support the trays.
