James, my son helped me,(ok so he actually did all of it), draw a quick "sketchup" of the box, roughly. It will look something like this. Well I thought it would, I have tried twice to upload it but don't see it when I preview post. There it is! So, to answer a few questions, 3/4" or more, up to 5/4" for total thickness. I would like to see a perfectly smooth transition between front and sides, without a little bead to hide the joint, but that may not be possible. I would like the sides to be continuous. the box is about 24" wide, about... everything can be altered a little as necessary. Regarding laminations, can I bend, or steam, a 1"x6"x4' piece of cherry around an egg shape, or hemisphere? I would need to do several of them and then stack them.

If you cannot stand behind our troops, (and I understand, no judgement here), then please stand in front of them, remember, they're willing to stand in front of you!
