now with this box, i saw some improvements i could make to it. it's much different than the previous one. the other has a door that hinges up and it locks solidlt in the bottom at center.
this one opens to the side, hinged on the left, and locks on the right, but at the bottom. i felt this made a slightly weak point of the top right corner. not really anything that needed to be upgraded, but i imagined a bear standing and trying to check it out, and his claws would just naturally grasp at the top of the box, and they would catch that door lip and that's where the looser top corner could definitely be forced outward if that happened.
plus, i didn't really want the build to end yet, so on to some improvements. that resulted in a locking top as well now that really makes the box quite sturdier.
