This is a comment for the general readership. I expect you already know this.

A problem with an unplanned carcass for a spice box is the security issues of the traditional form. One side board (the hinge side) is set back by the width of the door, so that the hinge hardware and the lock hardware are completely covered by the door and box. This keeps the kids and the hired help honest, since the spice box was designed and used to hold valuable items. Trying to retrofit many types of the traditional hidden compartments can also be a challenge.
