Now what?

>I finally got back in my shop this afternoon and decided to try turning a little spalted maple box. I jam fit the lid onto the body and finished turning the details but when I went to remove the top to do the final fitting, I can't get the top to budge. I'm thinking about putting it in the freezer for 15 minutes or so. I also thought about the microwave, but I figure that would cause it to warp or split. Any suggestions?
