The dovetails look hard to do.

Hmmm not quite a circle, but...

   
Paul Sellers Plans..
   
Down loadable from his Masterclass videos..
   
All 4 sides are curved,,
   
And the dovetails are cut to match..
   
Panels for the top and bottom are made to appear like they are floating ( but they do sit into grooves)
   
Back saw to saw the lid free of the box..
   
Do the ends first, THEN the sides,,,add a shim to the first side cut...otherwise, things will get "pinched"
   
A gouge to carve a finger lift...
And just follow the plans..
   
6 episodes to follow along in the Class...
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Since there are no corners there are no dovetails.  If you have a bandsaw, they are fun to make, and my girls loved them.  Just Google: bandsaw boxes.
