Lark Leazar replied to Ben's discussion A big wine box
"Cut a 5 degree angle on the part of the neck inside the box (on the upper part).  This will angle the neck back and give you more bridge height/break angle.  You can move the neck further into the box.  Maybe cut out the lid to give…"

"Came out really nice. The walnut is a nice touch. Can't even tell it is a door strike from here. I like to use scrap metal and cut my own tails- but I have used a door strike."
